Peeking Thru the Window

Hi and welcome to Merry Monday!  Today's challenge comes to us from Sue and she wants us to feature Santa on our cards.  Simple, right?


I made this card last year when I first received the cute set Cozy Christmas by Mama Elephant.



Because I made this card so long ago, I think I sponged Tumbled Glass ink onto white cardstock then stamped SU's Hardwood stamp in Broken China distress ink for my "wall".  The tree and Santa were stamped and colored with Copics before being die-cut with the matching dies.  The sentiment comes from Papertrey Ink's Signature Christmas set.  The "windows" were cut with Mama Elephant's Peek-a-Frames die.



Thanks for visiting.  Check out the Santa cards produced by the rest of the team - they're all amazing!

Products used:

Stamps:  Cozy Christmas (ME), Hardwood (SU), Signature Christmas (PTI)
Ink:  Tumbled Glass, Broken China, Memento Tuxedo Black
Cardstock:  white
Accessories:  Copics, Cozy Christmas dies, Peek-a-Frames (ME)

Cheers
Karren
