Merry Monday #81!

The challenge for this week at Merry Monday is simply to use a Santa image:

The card I ended up with is nothing at all that I designed in my head! How funny is that? Here's my card for this week:

I decided to add trees in the background, then I decided to add snow, then came the Glimmer Paper and the Seam Binding....whoa, I had to stop myself! My Santa is embossed and heat set with Cherry Cobbler Embossing Powder. I fussy cut him and then added a little bit of color to his beard, hat and cuffs with a Blender Pen & Soft Suede Ink:

Notice the little scroll at the bottom of Santa's list? I rolled a piece of Whisper White Cardstock, glue the end of my paper down, dipped each end in VersaMark Ink and dipped a 2nd time in Cherry Cobbler Embossing Powder, heated with my Heat Tool and then used a Blender Pen dipped in Soft Suede Ink to "dirty" up the scroll.

The Silver Glimmer Paper looks wonderful layered with Soft Sky & Cherry Cobbler Cardstocks. How fun!
