Nice List - Christmas in July!

I have been resisting all the talk of Christmas in the crafty world but... I've finally succumbed! I can only apologise! But it is only 152 days away - yep I'm Sorry again!

So here is Father Christmas from Dr Digi and the image is called Naughty or Nice.


I have left a space where I will use letter stickers to add someones name to the front before I send this card... so my friends and family still have time to earn the place on my nice list. (And I am definitely open to bribery!)

I've made this card using paper from Simple Stories - December Documented range. I mounted it onto Bazzill Swiss dot card in red. I used a Martha Stewart punch to create the zigzag edge and glued on to it some Christmas ribbon from Hobbycraft. I added some Doodlebug red enamel dots and also some green homemade dots. I have used 3D foam to make Father Christmas stand out a little.

Father Christmas has been coloured with Promarkers and Flexmarkers -
Skin - Antique white, Blush, Soft Peach, Coral & Spice.
Trousers - Red, Poppy, Ruby & Cardinal.
Shirt - Warm greys.
List - Satin, Tan & Antique white
Boots & Braces - Ice Greys
Eyes - Powder blue.
I also used a little gold pen to highlight buttons and I added some Frosted Lace stickles to Father Christmas' beard and hair.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges -
Crafty Calender - Christmas in July.
