Sending Christmas Cheer

Hi folks, it's hard to believe that Christmas is less than a week away and I couldn't let it pass without using the adorable Santa image from Simon Says Stamp Christmas Cheer stamp set and it just so happened that I needed one more card...

I trimmed Simon Says Stamp Fog cardstock to measure 3.3/4" x 7.3/4" and stamped the Santa and Candy Cane Pole images with Simon Says Stamp Intense Black ink. I stamped the images again on to Simon Says Stamp Masking Paper and cut out. I also created a mask for a snowbank.
With the masks in place, I coloured the background with Chipped Sapphire and Black Soot Distress Oxide inks using mini round blending tools.
I stamped snowflake images and a sentiment from the stamp set with Versamark ink and heat embossed with Ranger Superfine White Embossing Powder.
I removed the masks and coloured the images with Arteza Pencils
I added scribbles to Santa's list using a Sakura Black Micron Pen, stamped the words from the stamp set on to the signs with Simon Says Stamp Intense Black ink and added splatters of White Gesso to the background.
I added Glossy Accents to Santa's nose and the top of the Candy Cane Pole and matted the panel on to a Simon Says Stamp #120 Ultra White card measuring 4" x 8".

The cubbyhole crew have now taken up residence in the kitchen, cooking up a storm of festive food for Christmas and Boxing Day. The Furry Boy is on "guard the oven and lick up any spills" duty while I'm doing my best to demolish another pack of yummy mince pies from Costco. Have fun whatever you're doing.
