Today's Christmas card post is a striking Santa.
The printed papers are Stampin' Up Snow Festival. The image/sentiment is Paper Inspirations Jolly Santa stamped in Cherry Cobbler on Recollections White and layered on Garden Green. The embellishments are K&Company EB Visions of Christmas.
This card looks easy but it took a number of attempts to get this image stamped. It's a large image and if not carefully inked, it looks terrible. My first attempt was so crooked, I ran out of paper to fix it. The second attempt ended up with a terrible Cherry Cobbler smear. The third time was the charm. I debate layering with Cherry Cobbler but felt the Garden Green really helped the image pop. I wanted it to pop after all the failed attempts.
I hope you enjoy this card and come back to SPI again soon.
