Santa with Lantern



I can't believe it's November 1st already. I'm still working on Fall cards for my classes. 
However, I just purchased some Christmas Images from Craftsuprint.com and had to use one today. It's officially the start of my Christmas Card Extravaganza. This first one will probably go to one of my small Grandsons. I love the way it turned out.

I usually turn to sketch challenges for my starting inspiration. When I saw the sketch on Taylored Expressions Share the Joy Challenge, I knew it was the right one for this image. 
I cut a piece of CTMH Ruby Cardstock and then dry embossed it with the new CTMH Confetti Embossing Folder. I then sanded it so it looked like snow.

I used some scraps of red and white striped paper and border punched one of them.
I used a Spellbinders die to mat the image. and tied it all up with a dark green satin bow.

The Merry Christmas is from the stamp set included in with the CTMH exclusive Cricut Artfully Sent Cartridge bundle.
