A Santa's card (DT MiC)

Today's DT-card for Make it Crafty is made with two stamps: Elf Delivery System and Cheeky Santa. I have also used a lot of new dies which I have loved using on this card! For the card's shape I have used my new very large die from Craft-Too XL Nesting Frame 4 with a lot of sizes (16!!) 2,5*2,5 cm up to 14*14 cm. The gorgeous marine blue paper behind all the embellishments are from K Designs Cold Winter Paper Stack and this particular one is called Cold Night. 

I have coloured my images from Make it Crafty with Distress Ink Pads. Colours and other materials used:
Santa's clothes: Barn Door, Black Sooth, Glossy Accent and Iced glitter
Santa's belt and bell: Squeezed Lemon, Scattered Straw
Elves' clothes: Mowed Lawn, Black Sooth, Barn Door, Squeezed Lemon
Rocket: Barn Door, Black Sooth, Inka Gold Platinum

I have used Frantage Enamel Shabby Blue around the image and I must say that i just love using Frantage... It lifts everything up! :)

Here's a close-up on one of the Poinsettias I have made with Spellbinders Shapeabilities Dies Layered Poinsettias. I have used white paper for the flowers and embossed it in the Bigshot and inked it with Faded Jeans Distress Ink. I finally painted Inka Gold Platinum on the embossed parts and put on some Glossy Accent and glitter on the three dots in the middle of the flower. The leaves are made with a die from Craft-Too called Holly Die. I have chalked the edges with Vintage Photo Distress Ink and also painted it with Inka Gold Platinum as I did on the flowers.

I was SO happy to find this beautiful tree, a very special Christmas tree, since it is swirly and embossed and I just love it :) I have painted Inka Gold Platinum here too and chalked the edges of the tree with Vintage Photo Distress Ink. The snowflake is cut with a Joy of Craft Die and chalked with Vintage Photo Distress Ink as well. I dotted some Glossy accent here and there and then put on some sparkling glitter on the snowflake. The other snowflake on the stamped image is cut with a punch from Martha Stewart and also chalked with Vintage Photo Distress Ink.

This is truly one of my favourite items to have on my cards now.. This frame is made with extremely light weighed clay from Martha Stewart and the frame is included in a Starter's Kit from MS. It was white from the beginning and I have inked it with Faded Jeans Distress Ink and then painted it too, with Inka Gold Platinum. I used stickers to make the text that says "Merry Christmas" in Swedish, and then put on some Crackle Accent (LOVE!).

I just have to give a little cred for all the beautiful dies that I have used in this card to or Porslinsblomman as it also is called, I LOVE the range of dies that they have and I can truly say that they stand out with their gorgeous dies from varies of brands!

That's all for today and I hope to see these stamps on one of your holiday cards soon ;)
