Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge #76 and Holiday Tag Contest: Velvet Santa

Ho! Ho! Ho!  Today I have a tag card for Waltzingmouse Stamps Sketch Challenge #76 and the Waltzingmouse Holiday Tag Contest.  Check out this cute inspiration sketch: 
I'm not sure what made me think of Santa for this one, but here is my card:

I used the neatest velvet paper for his "coat".  Here's a picture which better shows the velvet:
I cut two Spellbinder Fleur de Lis diecuts for the belt buckle, one in coasterboard and one in gold vellum and layered them together for a nice dimensional belt buckle.  The belt is black glitter paper and there are two little square brads for buttons.  The pom poms represent the fur on his coat.  I added my sentiment tag from Candy Jar Christmas embossed in gold and a little scroll to hold the tag from a Spellbinder Ironworks die.  The whole thing is tied up with a gold ribbon of course Santa has to have some bells, doesn't he?   This rather large tag is going on my husbands gift this year.  He's a pretty good guy and deserves to be on my "nice" list!
If you want a chance to win 4 sets (yes, I said 4 sets) of Waltzingmouse Stamps, all you have to do is make a tag using at least one Waltzingmouse stamp set by December 20th.  For more information, here's the link.
