CCEE Santa

For the last CCEE Stampers' challenge in December, Frances challenged us to use a Santa image in our design.  The CCEE Stampers' will be taking a holiday break until the end of December, but we'll be back the first Thursday in January 2013 and hope you'll join us!



I love this traditional Santa image by Rubbernecker.  I heat embossed Santa with gold embossing powder and colored him with Copic markers. For his beard and hat, I used a bleach technique to whiten it on my ivory card stock.  Since the image is large and takes up most of the card, I kept my layout very simple.

Have a very Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

 Supplies I used:
Stamps:  Santa by Rubbernecker
Paper:  Wild Wasabi, Very Vanilla, Vintage Snowflake dp
Ink:  none
Accessories:  Copic markers, Versamark, gold embossing powder, heat tool, ticket corner punch, bleach, brush, May Arts silk ribbon

Agh, DH wanted the laptop last night just as I reached your card, and when he switched users I lost all my open windows :-(. What a clever idea to use bleach for Santa's beard and hat. And goodness, I didn't actually recognise it as the same as Anne's!! Must be getting too tired with all the Christmas prep.

Great traditional santa and love the use of the embossing as it really pops him off the paper.
