WMSC#128 - Trendy Santa



Ho! Ho! Ho!  I was hoping there would be a sketch this Christmas for the card that was floating around in my head and Yippee!!  Saturday's WMSC#128 by Mischief Maker Kim Duran was perfect for what I have been thinking about.  At Christmas, Santa is always on everyone's mind and I was no exception.  Here is the sketch that inspired my Santa card:
 I made a Tri-fold card with a belly band.  I called him a "Trendy" Santa because he has a plaid background stamped all over his red coat.  Waltzingmouse Cabin Plaid Backgrounder is stamped in Versamark and gives a subtle little texture to his coat.  I did a little stitching and added some buttons which overlap each side of the card.  The sentiment is from Around Christmas Time and when you open the card...
here is what you see.  This image fits perfectly with a Santa card and is also from Around Christmas Time.  In this picture you can see how the buttons overlap on the left side of the card.  I only have a couple more Christmas cards to share before boxing up the Christmas supplies and packing them away until next year.  Make sure to check out this week's cards on the Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge Blog.

Love love this. His belly band is a real (paper) belt. How cute is that. Such a clever take on the sketch. I sense another top mouse award coming your way.
