Old Time Santa - CR84FN40

Welcome to another wonderful color challenge from the CR84FN Challenge Blog!  Thanks so much to those of you who played along with us for the last challenge, it's always wonderful to see how everyone uses the color challenges!  The next two week color challenge is Red, Kraft and Brown, we also have Cheryl Lea joining us as our Guest Designer. Inspired by the colors, I used the wonderful Santa image from the Artistic Outpost Snow Woods plate and some MME papers.


The ornaments are part of the MME papers and worked wonderfully with the placement of the old time Santa image.  The image is stamped in Ranger Coffee Archival on Kraft card stock, all edges are distressed with the Prima Distressing Tool and sponged with Gathered Twigs Distress Ink.  The sentiment was stamped in Cherry Cobbler on a scrap of MME paper.  To embellish I added some Champagne Tulle, a Rustic Star, and a bit of Spica Glitter Pens to the ornaments.

Here's this weeks color inspiration, we'd love for you to play along with us at CR84FN, you can find all the details here on how to enter. If you upload to any online gallery please use keyword CR84FN40 so we can find your creations!

What a beautiful card! Great mix of papers and textures. I love that Santa stamp, and I'd never have thought to stamp it on kraft cs, but it really gives it an authentic aged look. Artistic Outpost is new to me, but I'm definitely going to pay them a visit!
