Merry Christmas - Victoria Case

Happy Sunday Everyone!

It is a special day at SCACD! The store is reopening after a much needed rest for Susana! I want to share with you about the SCACD  design team which  I am very proud to be a part of!!   We are not only a design team together, we are a true  family who care deeply about one another! Today we are honoring our boss, friend and leader, Susana who makes us who we are!! Susana has been such a great friend for several years now and I cherish our friendship sincerely! Welcome home after a much needed rest Susana!! This card is dedicated to you to wish you happy holidays and that you are so busy packing boxes your head spins!! I shopped at SCACD for more than 2 years and the experience, customer care cannot be compared to any other online store. Susana goes that extra mile for you!

Victoria Case is a wonderful friend to Susana and I thought it was only fitting to use her image to create my card today!! It's an oldie but  goodie  Christmas stamp: Santa and Friends from the Winter Wonderland Collection. I love, love this Santa with the reindeer, birds, squirrel and packages surrounding him! Does it not scream Merry Christmas!?! I kept the traditional red and green colors because I am soooo traditional! I step out of my box at times but this is who I am!



  •  Copics - Skin: E21, E00, R20. Suit: R29, R27,R24, R89. Deer: E44, E42, E41, E40. Gold: YR24, YR23, Y15. Boots: C9, C7, C5, C3.
  • Doodlebug Flock Crushed Velvet 5.5 gm Lily White on his Santa's fur and Squirrel's hats. I love to feel this after it is done. Very easy to apply with a little bit of glue! 
  • Highlighted the image with Copic BG000
  • Cut out the doe and popped him up using Pop ups
  • Skakura Clear Star gel pen on the belt and ribbon to make them sparkle
  • Paper: Cosmo Cricket; Mr. Claus - filled with traditional Christmas paper!
  • Red Thread and stitch snowflake -  that is what I call it and it is very hard to see~
Welcome Home Susana!!  We love ya!
