This images are both from a retired Flourishes set called "Joy is in the Air", the set has the image of a snow globe plus the Santa 2 more equally cute images, this is like a 2 step stamp set, you stamp the snow globe and then, stamp the image inside.
Since this challenge calls for a one layer card I cut an 4"x11" card base from Ninah Solar White card stock and folded it at 5 1/2 then, stamped the images with Memento Tuxedo Black ink. I colored them with my Prismacolor pencils.
I heat embossed the sentiment with gold EP, added a little SU Dazzling Diamonds to Santa's hat and the snow for some sparkle and added a couple of score lines to either side for a bit of texture.
Now, I colored Santa's mittens last, I honestly did't know if they should be white, black or red, I actually Google this question and I got several responses for the colors, mostly favored red mittens so I colored them red. Now, some mentioned Santa's toy sack and said that it could be either red, green or blue so, I chose red. It's amazing the stuff you find out just by Google-ing!!
I want to thank you for stopping by, I appreciate your comments and will answer your questions, should you have any.
Until next time, happy stamping.
Hugs from Maria.
