Merry Christmas from Mini Santa Card

Hi everyone! :o)

Today I'm sharing with you couple of Christmas cards I made this week.

Merry Christmas from Mini Santa Card is the second card I'm sharing today. If you missed the first one, just scroll down or follow a direct link here.

All elements on this card are from an awesome Create a Smile 'Snow Dance' kit. :o)

First I made a panel. I cut a designer paper and made snowflakes using stencil and structure paste. I left it dry one day.

Image is paper pieced. I used 4 stamped images, 3 stamped on a watercolor paper and one on the designer paper. I colored Santa's face with colored pencils and shaded his beard with light gray colored pencil. I used dry paper stump to blend colors in to paper. I colored Santa's boots with black permanent pen. After coloring, I fussy cut parts I needed, colored edges with black Stabilo pen, softened all pieces with a stylus ball on a soft working mat, glued all pieces together and added final touches with a white pen.

At the end, I glued the panel on a white card base, glued 3-D foam pads behind Santa and placed him on the card, glued few enamel stickers and my card was finished. :o)

Card dimensions are 101 mm x 133 mm (4" x 5 1/4").
