Simple Santa



This is another take on Paper Player's Challenge of Christmas in July. This is a very simple Santa. I started with a base of Sahara Sand. Next there's a layer of Real Red, then a layer of DSP (retired), then a layer of Taken with Teal (retired), and finally a layer of Whisper White. I used the Santa (what really drew me to the set), from the Holiday Hoopla set. I stamped the hat first. I used versamark and red tinsel embossing powder. Then I stamped him in Stazon and colored his face in. Then I stamped the sentiment, a dollar stamp from one of those dollar bins at my local craft store. Then I used a red grosgrain ribbon to finish it off.


It's very simple, but I do like it.


Thanks for looking...

Lisa, what a deal that fabulous sentiment was! It works beautifully with the style of the focal image. Love to colors you chose and the red grosgrain ribbon was the perfect finishing touch to this wonderful CAS card.
So glad you were inspired to share it with the Paper Players this week
