Simple Santa

Wouldn't you know, I made a Santa card for a challenge yesterday and didn't get it posted in time? Just my luck! lol I also used the challenges at Dynamic Duos and CAS(E) this Sketch! and luckily I am in time to enter those. :)
I just love the pink and green together and I thought it would look great for my one and only Santa stamp! 
I think of Santa as being magical, so I wanted to make the rays to create that effect. I did this by cutting up Post-it-Notes and using them to mask my cardstock. The sticky on the Post-It helped to keep them in place as I was sponging. My Santa tag is on Dimensionals and then I added some rhinestones for an additional bit of magical feeling. 

Stamp Set: Tag It
Cardstock: Gumball Green, Whisper White
Ink: Gumball Green, Primrose Petals
Tools: Chalk Talk Framelits, Post-it-Notes
Accessories: Rhinestones, Dimensionals

  3. Santa DOES radiate joy (which I would certainly picture as a rosy pink!), doesn't he? Thanks for linking up this sweet Christmas card at Dynamic Duos this week. Glad you made that deadline, too!
