Jolly Santa

I saw this stamp at Quixoticpaperie a while ago and bought it ready for Christmas.  Thing is I had it coloured ages ago and have only just got round to actually putting it onto a card.

The stamp is Make It Crafty's Cheery Santa.  The image is coloured with ProMarkers and cut with a Spellbinders die.

I thought I'd be a bit different and do this one on a shaped card.  It too me absolutely ages to decide what to do with the bloomin thing though.  The shaped card was bought from Lili of the Valley ages ago. You can only get these cards in their shop you can't order them online.  The papers are from Lili of the Valley Simple Joys and Classic Christmas paper pads.  I had to hand cut the red stripped paper as I've not got a die large enough so this was a bit fiddly.  The other paper (black with gold Christmas trees on) was a bit of leftovers from a Hobby Craft pack I bought last year.

Additions - a laser cut Christmas tree decorated with yellow and clear self adhesive gems.  Some red and black pearlised self adhesive gems.  A Be Jolly sentiment.  All of these were from Hobby Craft.  Finally a silver parcel from Marianne Designs which I also bought in Lili of the Valley.

As usual this one was a bit of an experiment - but thankfully came out ok :)
