For my card this week I have used a traditional image of Santa from Sylvie Stamps. He completely reminds me of the Santa that my Grandad used to take us to visit at Lewis’ departments store in Leeds when I was a child. I don’t have any photo of me as a child but just before Grandad died he sent me a photo of me sitting on Santa’s knee and it is one of my most treasure possessions.

I coloured the image with Flexmarkers using a very pale grey for the facial hair with a slightly darker shade for the detail. I used an antique white for the pompom and fur on hat and then added some Stickles glitter glue over the top.

The traditional text paper is from an old DCWV stack and the sentiment is a glittered rub on from Dovecraft inside a nestabilities die cut. I added a few gems to finish off and used 3d foam to mount the image and sentiment panel.
