I pulled another Santa out of my stack of colored images and put together this card. The layout for this card was inspired by the birthday card that Julia S sent me last year. Her card can be found in my stamp room and her Splitcoaststampers gallery. I encourage you to check out her blog and her SCS gallery if you're not familiar with her work. She is an amazing designer.
For my card I went with the traditional size card instead of the square layout but knew I wanted to keep the ribbon and eyelet element and the word circle with the sticker center. I found some wonderful bubble stickers at the $1 store and had to use one on this card.
The paper piercing is done by sewing a zigzag stitch without any thread. I ran my white souffle pen over the piercing for a faux stitched look. The patterned paper is from Basic Grey's Dasher collection and the pink is Regal Rose from Stampin' Up. I ran the pink circle under the sentiment through my Cuttlebug using the snowflake embossing folder and inked the edges with some white craft ink. Thanks for stopping.
