Holiday Fun & Cute

Hi all, hope you are having a great weekend!

I have yet another Christmas card to share with you today. This is what I came up with for the Stretch Your Holiday Style: A Fun and Cute Challenge over at the Moxie Fab World Blog... My cute Santa was cut from some PP I have had forever. Since he was cut from PP he was a little flimsy. So in order to strengthen him and attach him to the card with dimension, I adhered him to white cardstock and then cut him out again. The "ho ho ho" is a rhinestone sticker I have had forever as well. It's good to finally use all these Christmas goodies I have been hording.
I finished the card of with some polka dot scallops, floss and a rhinestone on top of cute little Santa's hat. Oh, can you believe it... not a single stamped image or sentiment on this card! I think that's a first for me on my blog.
I had the hardest time trying to get the perfect shots with this card. I think all the bling was too much for the camera. The photos I posted were the best I could do and I'm still not very happy with them. It looks so much better in person. Oh well, you get the idea though, right?!
Hope you enjoyed your visit with me today!

  7. This is over the top adorable!! The Santa is fantastic and perfect with the blinged out HOHOHO!! I have the hardest time with photographing gemstones too...I find inside better and I'm wondering if a light tent would help at all. Oh, tomorrow I'm posting 2 awards to you :) Please just accept them, even if you don't pass them along...I don't want them to turn into "chain letter" awards, KWIM? Enjoy!
