Who doesn’t love a great Santa?
I love Christmas and I love Santa.
My parents every Christmas Eve would gather my sisters and I together
and read to us “Twas the Night Before Christmas”
by Clement Clarke Moore
So I love the traditional Santa decided below
“He was dressed all in fur, from his head to his foot,
And his clothes were all tarnished with ashes and soot;
A bundle of toys he had flung on his back,
And he looked like a pedler just opening his pack.
His eyes—how they twinkled! his dimples, how merry!
His cheeks were like roses, his nose like a cherry!
His droll little mouth was drawn up like a bow,
And the beard on his chin was as white as the snow;
The stump of a pipe he held tight in his teeth,
And the smoke, it encircled his head like a wreath;
He had a broad face and a little round belly
That shook when he laughed, like a bowl full of jelly.
He was chubby and plump, a right jolly old elf,
And I laughed when I saw him, in spite of myself.”
This year Stampin’ Up! have given a wonderfully traditional Santa and I couldn’t resit
purchasing this stamp set.
So here is my card using this the “Father Christmas Stamps”
I wanted to achieve the old world charm of this stamp set.
So I have used Crumb Cake and Always Artichoke as my card stock. The images were all stamped in Early Espresso.
In stamping the top and base of this card the “Stamp-a-ma-jig” became my best friend in lining
everything up nicely.
Using a Blender Pen and Always Artichoke Stamp Pad I traced around the
finer scroll lines in the boarders top and bottom.
Santa was then coloured in softly to allow the fine detail of the stamp to come through.
The edges of the layers of card stock was sponged in Early Espresso and Always Artichoke
to add to that Aged Old Charm.
I hope you have enjoyed my part in this Blog Hop.
