Santa Klaws - 12DOC ....

... Hello again!  I'm back with my card for Day 3 of the 12 Days of Creepmas, sponsored by Smeared Ink.  Today's card is very much dark Creepmas and I love it!

Stamps: Stampers Anonymous Brett Weldele - Zombie Santa
Inks: Memento - Tuxedo Black, London Fog; Versafine - Onyx Black
Accessories: White Lustre Card; Kaisercraft DP - North Pole; Martha Stewart Glitters; Copic Markers

I've kept the card really simple so that Santa Klaws is the focal point.  I covered the card with the red check paper.  I stamped the image on white card, coloured it with Copic markers and cut it out leaving a narrow white border.  I added coarse crystal glitter to the hat and collar, and used tinsel crystal glitter for his beard.  I used one of the pre-cut frames from the paper pack for the sentiment, which I stamped in black.  On the inside I used another piece of design paper for the mat, and on the white panel added a fireplace and Christmas greeting.  I'm not sure I'd want this Santa to make his way down the chimney!!!

I realise that this card also work for a couple of our previous challenges at 52 {Christmas} Card Throwdown.  I used markers to colour the Zombie Santa, so it works for the February Stash Challenge - 52CCT09-15 and also for the August Colour challenge - 52CCT32-15.  The challenge this week is to PICK A PREVIOUS 2015 CHALLENGE, so I'm going to add this to the board.  I'm not sure how my team mates will take it :)  I'm also playing along with Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge - CCICDec, as they have a theme of Santa.  I'm not sure how they're going to react to my zombie Santa!  I think he's kind of fun!!!
