The Man in Red

It seems like I've been doing a lot of things with Endless Wishes lately and not using the other Christmas sets I have, so today I decided to break out Santa Stache and make something.  What do you think?

I considered getting some white ink refill and using it to watercolor Santa's beard and part of his hat, but I kinda liked this the way it is, simple white-on-red.  The thing that took the longest on this card was deciding on the patterned paper :)  I used the brand-new sketch from Freshly Made:

Easy peasy lemon squeezy!  I made the background panels larger but definitely followed the sketch.

Well, that's it for me today, peeps.  I still need to write my Christmas letter and get packages ready to send and about a hundred other tasks before Christmas....cheers!

Supplies, all SU!
Stamps:  Santa Stache

Totally fun! Love the red and white!

It's incredible just how big that moustache is in comparison to his beard. Pretty funny.

So anxious for today to be over with. I heard rain a little bit before. Hopefully that won't make the commute terrible.

Have a great day!

Forgot to say that I DO like the card -- and especially that paper with the little acorns and ferns. Coolness!

That Santa is such a fun guy. And I love the clever sentiment that you've used with it. Thanks for joining us at Freshly Made Sketches!
