A Third Sample for Karen

Good Morning Ladies, hope that you are enjoying your weekend, todays card is the third sample for my friend Karen of Crafty Ideas by Kaz as I said a couple of days ago Karen has asked me to create some samples to preview her new line in Christmas stamps, I do hope that you will pop across and have a look at them. Karen has a fantastic shop and carrys all the new Magnolia stamps plus her own CDs the "Ultimate Verse Writer" which allows you to create your own inserts, and the "Pyramid Crazy" CD which allows you to create your own pyramid toppers and papers for your cards, Karen is a very talented lady and Im sure you will find some really lovely goodies when you browse her website.
Todays card has been created with this cheeky Santa design, Ive stamped him onto white smooth card and then coloured him again with my promarkers, and used glitter for his hat and flowersoft for his beard and moustache, then Ive used my Nestabilitie Labels die No.4 to cut him out, I then used it again on some red card then rotated it behind the stamped image. Again the sentiment is one from the same set of stamps and this has been treated in the same way, before actually mounting both Ive run some more glitter around the edges of both the image and the sentiment then stuck them to the mount with some foam tape.
The base card is a 6"x 6" white card with a first layer of red card and one of the papers from the Dovecraft "Jolly Happy Christmas" card/paper set of designs, and Ive used a sentiment one which I have stuck to the right of my base layer, and then used a piece of white card that Ive run through the cuttlebug with a snowflake embossing folder and before sticking it to the other side of the card Ive used the snowflake border punch down the edge. On top of the seam I have put a wide ribbon which has a white base and red and green poinsettas and holly leaves and berries on, this was attached to the back of the first layer.
The mounted image was positioned in the middle and the sentiment at the bottom on the right hand side, to finish of Ive stuck two snowflake buttons at the top on the right.
