Newton's Nook Guest Feature

Hello there!  I am so excited to be a Newton's Nook Designs guest designer for "Deck the Halls with Inky Paws" week!  I'm here with a fun Christmas card to share with you featuring the adorable Dear Santa stamp set!  To create my card, I started off with a piece of white cardstock cut to 4" x 5.25".  I masked off the bottom 1/3 of the panel and used the Cascading Stars Stencil with some Festive Berries Distress Oxide ink to add a star pattern to the top of the panel.  Then, I stamped and colored one of the Santas and a few presents from the Dear Santa stamp set and fussy cut them out with scissors.  I popped everything up with foam tape using the masked off area to ground the scene.

To the left of Santa, I stamped a sentiment from the set in black ink, and used my Gansai Tambi Starry Colors watercolors to add gold to part of the sentiment.  To add a bit more gold, I diecut some stars from gold glitter paper using a die from my stash and glued them over a few of the stars in the background.  Before popping the panel up on an A2 card base, I added a strip of striped paper from the Meowy Christmas paper pad to the left edge of the card base.  To finish off my card, I added some white gel pen accents to the images.

That's all for me today, but thanks so much for stopping by! :)
