Holly Greens Background text onto a sheet of polka dot paper and used it for my base. I edged the top of the card with a Martha Stewart Pine Branch edge punch and added a little bit of burlap since I think burlap adds a "folksy" touch. The focal point is a seed packet from Papertrey Ink. Isn't that a great Santa Claus image (Folk Santa, large)? I paper pieced his coat and colored the rest with copics. You can't see it in my picture, but the fur trim has chunky glitter on it and a little pom pom at the end of his cap.
A glittery snowflake and holly and berry brad add a little more Christmas color. The sentiment is Christmas Memories from Serendipity and is attached using a copic-stained mini clothespin. Now for the tags, the easiest part of the card because they are already made for you, all ready to cut out and tie a bit of twine around them.
They are also from Serendipity and are called Holiday Tags Set.
Warmest Wishes by Serendipity and I also stamped the miniature version of Santa (Folk Santa, small) just to follow through with the Santa theme (also, love I just love to stamp this cute image). He even looks good uncolored! Make sure to pop over to the Serendipity store, there's a great sale going on.
