Joyeux Noel

I just love this vintage Santa from the Artistic Outpost Snow Woods plate!  When creating my card, I had a gift idea in mind - the Santa medallion can be removed from the card by the recipient and used as an ornament.  The image is stamped in Red on White card stock, then layered on a White and Chocolate Circle, then onto the Lattice Spellbinders Die.



I had a little creative help with today's card, as the color inspiration comes from the CR84FN5 color challenge of Tan, Brown and Red. The Sketch was inspired by Card Patterns Sketch #91, the embossed Snowflakes on the Core'dination paper for my background was inspired by this weeks Tuesday Trigger at Moxie Fab.   This card also fits the challenge at MFP to use a circle. My BFF just sent me the new Tim Holtz Snowflake Texture Fades Folder and I thought it would be perfect for the challenge.  I just love this embossing folder, especially with the Core'dinations paper!

Lisa,

This is fantastic. I loved the image when you first showed him to us. This is really grand!

I love the background paper! How fabulous! It looks like wall paper to me. It is wonderful with that ribbon and "jewels!"

Way to go!
