CAS Christmas July 2022

I am way behind on my Christmas cards so I'm glad CAS Christmas is back in full force.  Today's challenge is Santa.  Who doesn't love to see that jolly old elf on their cards? 

The Santa is from Rabbit Hole Designs - a prize I won from Less Is More's birthday celebration a while ago.  This is actually the third attempt to color him.  I started with alcohol markers but kept getting outside the lines. 😠 Then I tried Zigs but you know what happens when you add water to red.  So I finally pulled out my PolyChromos pencils.  I'm hoping the texture makes it look like a velvet suit. 😉  I layered up the panel cut with The Greetery's Crimped Frames, put those failed attempts under Santa to pop him up and added the sentiment from the set.

Did you see yesterday's post?  The floor is in and both of us are living to tell about it. 😁

Your Santa is so cute, Bobby! The pencil-coloring worked so well for his velvet suite texture, and gave the suite warmth! It was worth trying 3 times (and you used the other die-cuts to add dimension)! The crimped frame nicely matches the stitches of Santa's clothes.
Thanks so much for sharing this cute and fun Santa card with us at CAS Christmas! Hideko xx
