** Merry MERRY Christmas** Santa Slackers #5

Well I immediately though of the (Mistletoe )Making Memories paper pack from last year when I saw this sketch and decided to base my card around the paper!!  I used the Santa head from Joy to the Seasons cut at 3 ins and layered him hid some cuts cuddled his beard and stickled his hat.  I knew we were going to use tags so I found some old fashioned looking greetins to stamp on the tags.  (thank goodness for the dollar stamp bins)  an I ties some bows on with linen thread.  Used Tim Holtz vintage photo distress ink to ink my edges doodled around a little and used good old pop dots for some dimension.  Oh i almost forgot Martha Stewart corner punchs for the left hand corners.  I never thought I would get this down on paper like it was in my head!!  But I guess it works for a card that could be made in duplicates pretty fast if I had to!!!!  Thanks for looking and let me know what you think!!!

Beautiful, Sandi! The papers invoke all kinds of warm memories. Love the debossing on Santa's beard.
