Father Christmas is here again!

Father Christmas was fun to color with Stampin' Write Markers!  The Father Christmas stamp set is on page 22 of the Holiday catalog.

I used Very Vanilla as the A2 card base.

The 4" x 5 1/4" piece of Old Olive card stock was embossed with the Holly embossing folder as seen on page 195 of the Annual catalog.  Then I lightly sponged along the embossed areas with Old Olive ink.

Father Christmas is on a  2 1/4" x 3 3/4" piece of Very Vanilla card stock.  He is stamped with Stampin' Up! Archival Black Ink so when I colored the image, it would not get muddy from the black ink.   His robe is colored with Cherry Cobbler ink.

Everything else is colored with Stampin' Write Markers that stuck my eye at the time.  I made several of these cards and used different colors for the toys on each card.

The colored piece is glued onto 2 3/8" x 3 7/8" Cherry Cobbler card stock.

All white areas on Father Christmas are painted with Clear Wink of Stella for a festive look. 

The sentiment is stamped with Cherry Cobbler ink onto a Very Vanilla scrap of card stock and then die cut with the new Layering Squares Framelits on page 193 of the Annual catalog.

The ribbon is Cherry Cobbler 3/8" Taffetta.  The square sentiment is tied on with Cherry Cobbler Metallic Thread.  Both are in the 2016 Holiday catalog on pages and 20 and 7, respectively.

Thank you for stopping by.  If you would like to order any of the supplies used in this card, please shop in my on-line store here.
