SANTA CLAUS is coming to town

The big man never stops being an inspiration for awesome holiday cards. Scroll down to last week's post to link up your own Santa Card! Meanwhile, here's what we made this week:

Stephanie says, "I can never resist Christmas papers with a fun Santa Claus ... this one sort of looks like he belongs on South Park with his skinny arms  legs and square torso.  I embellished his hat with an Eyelet Outlet enamel dot, added a holly brad & glitter washi tape using the Sketch from The Paper Players ... quick, easy & mailable."

Lauren says, "At the moment I'm a bit obsessed with AlteNew's super-thin, amazingly die-cut-able wood sheets. They come in cherry and birch, this is the cherry; it's luscious, right? I love that when you use it for a silhouette style diecut, you really don't need to do anything else, it's a statement all on its own. Santa is flying through a beautiful greyscale night sky I found in an old "Christmas Ideals" magazine. I added some neutral, fairly flat layers to trim out the card (sheet music, doily scraps, washi tape, vintage seambinding) and then popped on a couple of velvetty floral accents and called it good!"
