Couldn't wait to get this Santa image inked up from the Penny Black transparent set Whooo's Wishing . This set includes this Santa, penguins, a snowman, a deer and some owls who give the set its name.
I stamped Santa with Vivid red ink and then outlined beard, moustache and eyebrows with a black pen. I popped each Santa into a frame created by my Tri Square die. The holly leaves are stamped on the inside of the card and allowed to peek out. The original design was altered when I looked at my finished card and realized the sentiment said "oh, oh, oh" as in Ho Ho Ho stamped upside down!!
A new strip of white solved that problem! I love these little Santas .. they have a bit of a Bavarian Alpine look!!
Rainy day in Huntsville!! Lots of stamping time! I'm not quite ready to go full time towards Christmas. Fall is a good time to switch to warmer tones and celebrate the Fall holidays! But you know how it is when new stamps arrive by mail!
