Santa - Prismacolour Pencil


Santa with a puppy, what could be more merry and bright? Ho, Ho, Ho!

This Christmasy card features stamp sets by Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps and Prismacolour pencil on a candy background. Santa has an emergency candy cane in his pocket, too. So sweet.


Putting It Together

Last night I was looking to make a quick and easy card, but I had so many false starts and mind changes it ended up taking twice as long as I wanted. But... I won't show you all of that *laugh*


I stamped in light blue on Bristol, and...


coloured with Prismacolour pencils. I really need to get some greys.


I trimmed the image with a pierced die and dry fit it with patterned paper scraps and glittered cardstock. I decided to use the glitter cardstock for a little sparkle and snowy look.


I decided to use the Kraftin' Kimmie Octorber sketch as the inspiration for my layout.


I love this combo.


I added a sentiment on the front as a label.  I used foam mounting tape to pop up the image and the sentiment.


Inside, I decided to stamp the sentiment in red and add in a scrap of the patterned paper. I love peppermints.
