green & red & glitzy (Crafting for All Seasons, SSS)

Kids are out of school.  Tree is up and decorated (finally).  Had a bit of a light fiasco this year.  Not to worry, these cards are already in the mail too.  Just sharing them with you today :)

My packages are all wrapped too and this Santa is actually gift wrap.  After seeing him for a good hour while wrapping, I decided he was worthy of adorning a card.  The background of the paper is matt gold and these little embellies were part of a cardmaking pack I picked up at Aldi (yep!).  They were perfect for this card.

Actually modelled my card on Retro Sketch #41 which I unfortunately didn't get to participate in.  I'm joining these challenges:
Simon Says Stamp - Merry Christmas
Crafting for All Seasons #42 - Green and Red plus Glitter/Sparkle

Happy Friday eve.

Supplies for Merry Christmas:
Paper: cardbase Papermania, CS  American Crafts, PP ?
Stamps: , sentiment Hero Arts
Ink :Jenny Bowlin
Tools: square die Sizzix
Other:  gift wrap, embellie Aldi

Hi Maria,
I love your cards - how creative to use wrapping paper! Some of the stuff available now is SO beautiful - I can totally see how you were inspired! This Santa, for example, is awesome!

Merry Christmas!!
