Father Christmas/SantaOnce again the DT have all managed to come up with something to tickle your creative tastebuds and we look forward to you joining in with us with your interpretations of our challenge.
So I spent some time flicking through and rediscovered plenty of old favourites including this cute Santa from Tubes By Amanda.
I opened the tube in PSP and then copied and mirrored it, floodfilling the reversed one to remove the text before printing. He looks a little washed out in my photo but that is down to my (lack of) photographic skills and is actually much brighter in real life.
After cutting them out I drew around one onto a folded sheet of gold glitter card and then cut around the outline to make a shaped card.
Then it was a simple case of adding some stripey paper from my scrap box and a few embellishments like the jingly bell and recycled ribbons.
Inside is the reversed image, perfect for a message, and luckily there was just enough paper left to decorate the inside back so it isn't too boring.
The Challenge Mania Blog helped me to quickly find some other challenges for which this little card may be suitable and they are ...
