Ho! Ho! Ho!

It's a new week and I have a couple of cards to share for Monday challenges.  The first challenge is from the Creative Challenge Club.

I know this sketch has an acorn and a leaf, but I wanted to use Santa from Santa Stache.

Isn't this a great Christmas version of today's sketch??  I just can't get enough of Santa Stache, this set is so fun to work with.

Are you noticing all the stars??  I told you I LOVE the star products we have right now.  No matter how hard I try, I keep adding them to all my cards!

This card has some great basic Christmas colors...Cherry Cobbler, Garden Green, Gold and Crumb Cake.  The Trim the Tree Designer Paper Stack was the start of this card.  I knew that I wanted to contrast the Cherry Cobbler of Santa with Garden Green paper of some sort.  This particular star pattern was perfect, it's subtle which I like.

Santa is colored with Blendabilities as usual. I kept him simple and didn't use much color on his beard this time.  A gold glimmer paper star adds some bling and ties into the card sketch.  And instead of using some sort of paper for the element across the bottom, I used the new Cherry Linen Ribbon.  I love how easy the ribbon is to work with, the bow tied quite nicely.

The sentiment is a simple one stamped directly on the card base.  It comes from Get Your Santa On.  I like the smaller size and the sentiment itself was perfect for this card.  What do you think?  Is this a fun Santa card or what!

How about making a card of your own for the challenge?  Go to the Creative Challenge Club blog for all the details plus more great cards from the Design Team.

Thanks so much for visiting!  Happy Stamping!
