Are You CLAUStrophobic?

Welcome back!! Aren't you enjoying all of the sample using the new Christmas releases from DRS Designs?! Today I am sharing another sample with you, this one using the 'Claus'trophic Christmas Greeting (367G).

For today's card I created a square section of Santa's jacket to go with the sentiment. To do this I used paper with a suede feel in burgundy, black and white. The entire square was covered with the burgundy, then I created a belt using a strip of the black. To finish the coat off I used my deckle scissors on a piece of white and created the belt buckle with gold cardstock. The sentiment was die cut, then adhered behind 'Santa' with the edge overhanging just a bit. To tie in the belt buckle I used a couple gold brads above and below the sentiment.

Thanks so much for stopping by! Hope to see you back here again tomorrow!
