A Get Your Santa On Christmas Card

As I look at this card, I now wish I had not cut out the Santa.  I am not a fan of fussy cutting anyway but I thought that was what I needed to do.  But now that I see the background, I'm not caring so much for how it turned out.  But what's done is done! I do however, like the words on the side. Those are from the "Petite Pairs" set.  I've used the top wording but never the bottom one before.  It's kind of nice when you use all the stamps in a set, isn't it?  I don't do that very often at all.

The Santa is from the "Get Your Santa On" set.  It's the first time I've used the set.  There's some other cute and fun images in the set that I'm anxious to play with too.

My background paper is from the "Trim the Tree" paper pack.  I thought it would be a festive looking paper to add to my background.  The base of my card is Whisper White and the layer is Garden Green.  There is also some Cherry Cobbler card stock in the layers.   

The words and the Santa layer were set in place using Dimensionals.

I colored in the Santa with markers after I had cut him out.  I have tried to color and then cut but sometimes my fingers would pick up the ink while I was cutting and I would have a mess, so I now cut and then color!

This was a fun card to make and I especially like the words on the left side!  This card, even with the fussy cutting, did not take long at all to make!!!

Thank you SO much for visiting today,
