Cool Santa

What do you do for a 21 year old nephew, traditional, robins, holly, religious, cute, no, no, noo....me I had no idea, went through all my sheets, Cd's etc. zilch...so I googled everything I could think of, sexy Santa girls, well I did that last year, Santa playing football, nothing..Arsenal Santa's nope.., cars.. now that might work, I finally found this little image, a bit 60's well yeah, A hippie sort of Santa and a cool Rudolf....plus a car..

I roughly cut up the image in my graphics program, and decoupaged it into a few layers, those antlers were fiddly, especially as I had decided to change the blade in my craft knife, silly me....grabbed hold of the blade and snapped it in two, the top part stuck right into my finger, ouch *###* so I had a plaster and sellotape wound around the top half of my finger to stop the blood going all over the card, every time I pressed down on the knife, it bl**dy hurt like crazy, but I persevered and this is what I managed to do.

After I decoupaged the image I glittered it up a bit. Then took an A5 topper from the Artylicious Seasons Greetings cd into my graphics programs and changed the colours a bit. Copied that into Greetings Card Factory and did the greetings and name. Once printed, I glittered the tree with black stickles then glittered the greeting, name and snowflakes with a glue pen and glamour dust. Added the image to the backing sheet and mounted it onto silver miri card. As it was larger than a folded A4 card, I cut down to size an A3 white perilised card, (Yes it's white) ...And managed to get no blood on it..

Hope you like it...
