Another Santa and application for C.R.A.F.T. Challenge DT Call

Evening, all! I hope you're all well! I have spent some time in ye olde craft hovel today, and I've made another Santa card!

This is my second-favourite Santa image, after the Penny Black one that I used for yesterday's My Time to Craft Challenge. He is an old stamp from Whiff of Joy and he seems to have been discontinued, sadly. He is such a cheery chappie!

I'm sorry about the photo, irl the colours are brighter - and there's lots of glitter!

I coloured Santa with Promarkers and stickled all the fur trim on his outfit. The mats were cut with Spellbinders dies. I thought the white mat looked dull, so I stamped some Whiff of Joy Christmas Swirls with Tea Dye DI and stickled them.

The papers are from Hobbycraft. I used a Martha Stewart Star border punch along the horizontal piece. The little snowflakes are made with a Martha Stewart PATP corner punch, they are stickled and have gems in the middle. The sentiment is by Lili of the Valley.

Now I need to say why I'm applying for this DT!

I like the variety of Challenges, including Techniques and Colour Combos. I also like the 'Star of the Month' pick, I think that's a great idea! I'm on 2 DTs, so I'm used to commenting on entries and choosing Top Threes. I use sponsor images - I think that if they are kind enough to sponsor a challenge, it's important to do that. I try to be supportive of my teamies, and I very much appreciate the support I've been given, too.

Challenges I'm entering:

Crafty Hazelnut's Christmas Challenge - use something round
Crafty Hazelnut's Patterned PaperChallenge - I covered the card with a piece of patterned paper.

Thanks for looking, my lovelies!

love Mags B x
