Mini Red Santa Circle Card

Hi everyone! :o)

This weekend I'm sharing projects I made before I went on holidays, but didn't have time to share them here with you. If you want to see more of those projects, just follow this link to intro post. :o)

My fifth project in this Christmas/Winter series is a Mini Red Santa Circle Card.

Image is paper pieced. I used 4 stamped images, 3 stamped on a watercolor paper and one on a designer paper from the kit. 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 his boots with black permanent pen. After coloring and shading, 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.

Then I cut out two circles from a white cardstock paper, diameter size 4", for a card base and glued them together (top of the card). I cut out one more circle from a Kraft paper and one from the cardstock paper, both diameter size 3 7/8". I glued Kraft paper circle on the card base, cut out hill shape out of the white circle and glued it on the card base.

Heat Embossed a sentiment on the card, drew white dots to imitate snowflakes, added 3-D foam pads behind Santa, placed him on the card and added red enamel stickers on the card.

Card dimension d = 101 mm (4").
