EARLY CHRISTMAS CARD


I created this Christmas card for a challenge at The Craft Hole on Facebook.
I will share how I created this card.
Using a heavy piece of card stock the size of a standard card I modge podged tissue paper on the background.  
I searched through my stash of used Holiday greeting cards and found this Santa and chose another greeting card where I liked the gold and silver trim.  I set out to do some fussy cutting.
I took a piece of applique and painted it with brown glitter paint with some gold in places.
I purchased some paper snow flakes (I glittered with gold flakes) at Michael's a few days ago along with the little candy canes, a couple packages of poinsettias and some other fun items (I will share in a later post).
I used silver glitter paint on Santa's hat and sleeves and red glitter paint on his red suit parts to make him pop.
I hope you enjoy.
Thanks for stopping by.
Michele
