Happy Wednesday!
Are y'all getting into a Holiday mood yet? I'm having a great time working with all these terrific Christmas images. For this card, I used (
M1141)Cutie Pie Christmas Helpers, (B022) Santa Hat and (B364) One Line Merry Christmas.

The main image was stamped and water colored. I used a rectangle die to cut it out, left the die in place and sponged on a little yellow ink around the edges. The Santa hat was water colored and cut out. I added some liquid applique to the furry parts and heat set it to puff it up.

On the red background, I stamped the Merry Christmas image repeatedly on a diagonal across the panel with a darker red ink. I used a word window punch at the lower edge and attached a white piece with the greeting showing through the window. A white layer and a bright green textured layer finish it off.

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you feel inspired to start on your own Christmas cards.
