Father Chnristmas

Well, I'm back with another Christmas Card. This one was made special for my dear friend Vicki. She LOVES Holly!!!

The picture doesn't do this card justice since I took the poicture before the stickles was dry and you just don't get the glitter affect. But, I have way too much work to get done today to wait for glue to dry.

The DP is from Basic Grey. The Santa image is from a new set from Close to my Heart called Father Christmas. The Holly is also from a new CTMH stamp set called St. Nick. Both of these stamps will be available starting Sept. 1st in the NewCTMH  Fall/ Winter Catalog.

I used matching satin ribbon and the Hand Stitching is done with matching Embroidery Floss.

Other Challenge Blogs that this card was made for are:
Winter Wonderland - All I want for Christmas
Totally Gorjuss - Christmas in August
Basic Grey - Fabric
Secret Crafter - Christmas
Creative Cottage - Christmas 
Christmas Card Challenge - Glitter and Shine

I'm betting pictures never do your cards justice Nancy -- they are all just so fabulous! I love the sweet face on this St. Nicholas image, and you really brought him to life so wonderfully! Hugs, Deedee
