52CCT - Sketch ....

....  Hello!  It's time for our first challenge of the month at 52 {Christmas} Card Throwdown.  As it's the first Saturday of the month, it's our Sketch challenge.  I kept to the sketch, but if you need to flip it, turn it, feel free - but we must be able to see the sketch in your card.  Here's my take:

Stamps: Waltzingmouse - Santa's Coming to Town, Flurries, Opera Tags Christmas
Inks: Versafine - Onyx Black, Olympia Green; Stampin' Up! - Real Red, Certainly Celery
Dies: WMS - Stitched Tag, Folding Tag (Star)
Accessories: White Lustre Card; SU DP - Real Red; Clear Embossing Powder; Ribbon; Washi Tape


I'm playing along with a couple of challenges with this card.  The colours come from this week's Colour Throwdown - CTD#345 (so perfect for a Christmas card).  And over at Jingle Belles - JB:15:12, the ladies would like us to make a card with a shaker or to feature Santa or both!!  As you can see I decided to make Santa the feature of my card, but on tags, not as a shaker.  I stamped some snowflakes and stars randomly over the base.  I die cut two tags, one red and the other white.  On the white tag I stamped a Santa silhouette and simple greeting.  The sentiment is actually a very dark green, although it looks black in the photo.  I heat embossed both images with clear powder.  I covered a scrap of white card with green Washi tape and die cut a little star for the tag.  I edged the tag with soft green ink.  I created the sentiment banners by adding two strips of Washi tape to the top of white card and then stamped the sentiment.  The bottom banner is covered with musical Washi.  I attached the tags with dimensional tape.  On the inside I cut a mat layer of red design paper and added a simple Christmas greeting on the white panel.
