Mr. Santa #1028 ~ A Sandra Caldwell New Release
Hi everyone! It's Monday and that means that Sandra Caldwell has another fabulous group of new releases available in her Etsy shop, Babycakes Digis and Designs. I created another adorable Christmas card with my chosen image called Mr. Santa #1028. I love his dapper hat and cheerful face...so cute and fun to colour.
I coloured Mr. Santa with a mix of Prismacolor and Polychromos pencils. Don't you love his baby blues? He was fussy cut leaving a narrow white border around him and then was matted with black Card stock to frame him and provide contrast with the background. Foam tape was used to pop him up and adhere him to the background.
The background is actually one layer cropped from a larger sheet of designer paper to fit inside the white card base. It was then matted with black card stock to anchor and frame it. Faux black stitching was added to the scallops and picot ribbons to make them look more 3D and add some detail. A red button was threaded with green embroidery floss and it was adhered to the background with Glossy Accents. The letters for Ho Ho Ho are sparkly white stickers which catch the light beautifully.
Thanks so much for stopping by today to visit with Mr. Santa and me. He'll be putting you on the Good List for sure!
