A little bit of Christmas

Good morning everyone! Well, I completed a 100 card order and will be posting what I created every day. Hubby took them to work today and they called with another order!! The work is great, but I'm kind of tired of doing Christmas cards and there is still 3 weeks left!! I am in the mood to decorate and bake and after I finish this last order that is exactly what I am going to do:)

Today is a new challenge at Through The Craft Room Door Magazine Challenges and as always it is  "Anything Goes:  Come on over and join us and have a chance to win a years subscription to the magazine which is full of tutorials and tons of inspirations. The current issue theme is Holiday! Do you need a quick gift or inspiration for a Christmas Card - well look no more for all your ideas are right there! Plus, there are over 90 free digital images for you to enjoy.

My card today is created using Paper Shelter image and digital background.  Very easy card to do when you are in a pinch. I  printed it out twice, recolored Santa and his bag to give it more depth,  my printer didn't do such a good job of printing it out. The background paper is from Basic Grey and ribbon is Olfry. I cut the snowflakes out with Memory Box dies and my bow is created using the "Bow Easy". 

My card base is 10 x 5  red folded in half.
Dark green cut at 4 7/8 square. Design paper 4.3/4 sqaure.
Copic: Santa's Suit. R29, R46, R28, R24, R13\4
Santas bag: E50, E31, E23

I cut out Memory Box Die snowflakes and covered them with glue and glitter. 
Thank you for coming by!

This is such a beautiful card. Thank you for playing along with the High Hopes challenge. Unfortunately, you didn't use a High Hopes stamp so it does not qualify for the prize.
