Ho Ho Ho

Santa's coming, in 49 days, and today I wanted to share a card I made using yet another great file over at Too Cute by Jessica.  This one is titled At the North Pole.  Admittedly I took some artistic license with this one and omitted some of the trimmings that were included.  While I love the overall of the original I felt it was too busy to go with the background paper I was using.  Instead I wanted to focus more on snowflakes and that's what I did.
 
To create my card I used a couple of scrap papers that I had in my stash.  The one for the green door I know is from DCWV but I can't remember the other.  To add a bit of dimension I used a small red and white polka dotted brad - also from my stash.
 
The snowy roof tops and ground were ran through my Xyron and then I applied some of Martha Stewart's cararra marble and snow glitters.  This gave the card some texture while also adding just a small amount of bling.  The snowflakes you see on Santa's house are also from my stash.  I found these a couple of years ago at one of the local scrapbooking stores. 
 
For Santa's face I broke out my Peachy Keen Stamps and stamped it using the Everyday Character Faces.  And for Santa's bag I used some brown memory thread in place of the rope.  Then I stamped my sentiment on his bag using the recently released stamp set from My Craft Spot titled Naughty or Nice?

And now I'm off to enter this into the following challenges:

Metal - My Craft Spot - Ends November 8th (used a brad on the door)

Bingo Challenge - Holly Jolly Christmas - Ends November 9th (I used die cuts, 2 patterned papers and glitter {glitter paint})

Christmas - Crafty Hazelnut - Ends November 30th
