Ho Ho Ho

Christmas has already started in the Glittertastic house - I've been making Crimbo cards for a few weeks now and I'm well on schedule! Today's card is for a teenage boy - a difficult group of folk to make for so I kept it simple... very simple!

It's one layer week at Less Is More and inspired by their Santa theme I made this using an embroidery image from Urban Threads...

I used heavy white linen card for the base which I feel always adds a bit of texture to one layer cards and it's lovely to colour as the texture shows through.  I've used pro markers to colour him, and a silver gel pen for the buckle.  Peel-off circles were used for the boot buttons and I've finished it off with a tiny cotton wool ball for the pom-pom. The greeting was created using Candy Square BTN Striped font.

I've also entered this card into the challenges at:

Brown Sugar - no patterned paper
Alphabet Challenge Blog - 'Tis the season

Thanks for visiting
