Santa Claus is Coming to Town - Sweet Stampin' Challenge

I can't believe I'm making a Christmas card on Christmas Day, but I had some time between putting the turkey in the oven and putting on the vegetables.  Since I have already mailed my cards, this card, and the next one will be saved and used next year.

The Sweet Stampin' Challenge this week is about Santa Claus - specifically "Santa Claus is Coming to Town".

The stamp I used was particularly popular at my craft shows.



Art Piece
Santa was stamped on Whisper White card stock using Black Memento ink and coloured with Copic Markers.  Dazzling diamonds was added to the beard, hat and eye brows and cherry cobbler dazzling details on the berries on his hat.
The image was die cut using the classic labels framelits, and matted with a larger Real Red framelit
The unit was added to the card front using dimensionals.

Card:
The base of this 5 by 5" card is Real Red card stock layered with Whisper White cardstock, and then some red striped vellum
A red stitched edged ribbon is adhered about 2/3 of the way down and the art piece adhered over this ribbon - slightly off center.
The sentiment is adhered on the right side; a bit of ribbon tied in a know on the left.

Supplies Used:
Stamps: Santa (Frog's Whiskers", Greetings from Santa
Inks: Black Memento, Copic Markers
Papers: Real Red, Whisper White, Red striped vellum
Accessories: 3/4" Real Red stitched edge ribbon, Classic Labels Framelits, Dazzling diamonds, Cherry Cobbler dazzling details, dimensionals.
