I actually began this card by creating a mask of the Forest Santa on scrap paper and then I stamped the First Christmas stamp, with the mask in place, directly onto my kraft card base with Tsukineko's Momento Desert Sand ink. I LOVE the desert sand on the Neenah desert storm paper! The amazing Taylor did it once and I was hooked for life!
I embossed the Forest Santa with White Embossing powder by Stampendous! (Snow, if you are buying it under the Recollections label - same stuff - different name.) I love that stuff. I use it SO MUCH!!!!
I topped the card with just a bit of May Arts silk 1/8" ribbon. I love the luxury of the silk ribbons from May Arts! SO GORGEOUS!!!
AND...it just so happens that the Stampendous! Challenge this month is for CAS Christmas cards! Well...I bet several of you could come up with some GREAT submissions for THAT! Here's the linky if you've been inspired and would like to play along!
