Here Comes Santa Claus

Morning.
Hope you are having fun creating.

Meet my simple Christmas card using this super cute retro Santa.
At this time of the season, keeping it simple and quick is perfect to finish those last minute holiday cards.  
For my card, I began by stamping the dot pattern along the bottom of my card.  I place the stamp border from WPlus 9 into my Misti, inked it up with Candied Apple Distress ink and stamped.  I moved my paper up in my Misti and stamped again until I was happy with the pattern and spacing.
Next I stamped the sentiment, then stamped the Santa and fussy cut him out.
I pop dotted the flying Santa and done.



Enjoy the rest of your weekend and thanks so much for coming by and taking a look.

I love the chevron dots border which you have built up to make a great background Karen, and your cute Santa popped up for dimension, also the lovely sentiment is just the perfect finishing touch. x

What a fun Santa and a fabulous dotty background for him. Love just the red and black with a touch of shading. You're right - perfect for those last minute cards and also easy posting. Love it's simplicity Karen.
