My five year old said to me at breakfast this week Santa isn’t real. I immediately jumped to if you don’t believe he won’t come. Now I’m second guessing that it was the right choice. I was hoping there would be a few more years of ‘magic’ left. I just love the feeling of anything being possible at Christmas.
On to the card a beautiful old fashion Santa Claus. I bought this stamp in the same little shop in Lunenburg Nova Scotia as the truck I used in my last video. I have no idea the original artist but absolutely love all the details and style they use.
For the base 4.25″x5.5″ in Old olive cardstock (Stampin up), for the die cut Whisper white (Stampin up) the brown used is a Micheals paper.
I began by stamping the image in Memento Tuxedo Black as I was using Copic markers. I stamped the Woodgrain stamp by Stampin up in Stazon Timber brown on the brown paper and sponged the edges in the same.
I began with the face using a violet as my highlight(something new I’ve seen) it works amazingly.
I highlighted the beard, hair and eyebrows in the same shade and added grey and floral white. I’ve placed the colors in the picture and if you’d like more details you can check out the YouTube video I’ve linked to in the bottom of the post.
I added some wink of Stella and white gel pen. I also added some stickles around the hat. I added a shadow in a Warm Grey the whole way around and then went to work on the inside.
I used this Stampin up set (can’t remember the name) for the sentiment.
That makes the card complete. I hope you enjoyed the post and the final product and look forward to your comments. Please check out the video here https://youtu.be/KATblQ01sXw
