Merry Christmas!

Happy Tuesday!
I'm so glad you stopped by today to see this adorable card using the High Hopes Stamps "Santa in Chimney". Santa images always make me smile as they bring up warm memories of Christmas when my girls were little and still believed in Santa. There is nothing better than seeing a child's excited face Christmas morning when they race downstairs to see what Santa left them.
To start I stamped my image with Copic friendly ink and then using my Copic Sketch markers coloured "Santa in Chimney" in. I recently got this die (Kopplade Ringar) from Magnolia-licious when they were clearing out items and decided to play with it today. I cut it out twice with green cardstock and then glued those together. Using a circle die I cut out a circle for Santa to peek through. Then I placed the rings onto my card and positioned one of the larger circles over Santa so that he is peeking through. I cut different patterns with the die from the Echo Park Story of Christmas 6x6 collection and glued them into the circle parts of the die.
Here you can see how Santa is on the inside of the card which lets him peek through when the card is closed. My sentiment is also from High Hopes and is called "Scripty Merry Christmas". The sentiment is from the new "Christmas 2019 Release". Check out the release for more adorable images and sentiments!
I found this cool wooden embellishment and using my Copic's, coloured it to match the card colours. Santa has some Stickles on his fur trim for a fun look! Lots of red sequins finish off my design!
Here's the inside where you can see Santa trying to get down the chimney.
