Another card for Merry Monday!


I'm back with another card for Sue's challenge on Merry Monday to include Santa on your card!  I'm still looking for my old fashioned Santa stamp but in my search I found a darling Hero Arts clear stamp set from 2007 CL114 Joyful Greetings (no longer available for sale at Hero Arts).  Just love this Santa image!  And Hero Arts has such great quality clear stamps, here it is 8 years later and it stamps as well as it did on the day I bought it!!  Here's my card:

Santa

I used a Hero Arts folded card (lightest shade from the Pool Mixed Folded Cards set), Basic Grey Aspen paper, Lawn Fawn sequins, Copic Markers and Distress Inks.  For the stamped background I used the Tiny Ink Spots large design block stamp from Hero Arts - I use this one a lot, love it!!

And speaking of Hero Arts - today was Day 1 of our annual Hero Hostess Blog Hop, celebrating the release of their new 2015 Spring catalog.  Be sure to stop by if you haven't already; you'll see fabulous projects from 8 talented ladies!  I'll be holding up the rear on Day 2 tomorrow so be sure to check out the Hero Arts Blog starting at 6 a.m. US Central Time or stop at my blog for the links.

Thanks for stopping by and happy crafting!!

Adorable card, Linda! Love the fun Santa image and they way you have coloured it and added dimension on the hat! The tiny spots make me think of snow - hope you're not getting lots of it now!
