Joyful Santa

One layer Card

I love this Santa stamp, he looks so friendly and fun, and it really is a simple image perfectly suited to being stamped with Hero Arts Ombre ink.  I then masked the image and stamped with scratchy band in red.  Sentiment stamped on top with overlap into image.  Stars painted with Kindyglitz. I did one version where I coloured his hat, but I didn't like it as much.

Santa & sentiment stamps: Hero Arts
Scratchy stamp: Stampin Up

I can see why you like him so much Carol, he's adorable with his curly beard and little button nose. I love the ombre effect and I also like the way you added the red in the background. The sentiment is fun too!
