Santa (Paper Tearing Technique)

Over at AAA Cards, their challenge this week is to make a card using two embossing techniques and a hint of pink. As I am being smart this year and making my Christmas cards early, I opted to make one for this challenge. I saw this paper tearing technique on Pinterest by Create by Dee some time ago and loved to simple yet effect design. For added interest, I embossed his beard, embossed the sentiment in Gold, added some sparkle with die cut snowflakes by PI, and use the stitched circle dies by MFT for his nose and eyes. I also added a little shimmer to his hat band with some Wink of Stella clear.


I also entered my card into the Glory of Christmas Challenge (red and white card) , CHNC challenge 181: include some gold or silver (or both) (I used gold embossing powder on sentiment & silver in the snowflake), CHCC for June Christmas, and new to me the folks over at C.R.A.F.T. have great challenges.

UPDATE: My Santa card was selected as a Favorite of the Week ending June 15th at Splitcoast Stampers. For details see post #97 at
