12 Days of Christmas - Day 6

I didn't have a lot of spare time on Friday, on any Friday for that matter, so my project for today is a quick and easy one. This jolly little ATC is stamped on white CS in cranberry ink and then layered on some cranberry gingham. I added some glitter glue to the stars and hat and liquid glass to Santa's face and beard. Of course the liquid glass made the cranberry ink more orangey *sigh*. Might try this again with black ink and only glitter the hat.

Last year I was able to take one of my ATC designs and change it into my christmas cards so I'm hoping one of my little art will click with me and I can do that again.... hmmm.... still thinking this one over. Oh yea, stamps are CTMH and I adding some fake stitching around the edges.

Please come back on the 13th for some more holiday fun!

  7. Love the card! Thought the orange tint was a curve away from the traditional color scheme for the holiday. It works fantastically. TFS. Paula
