Happy Christmas Little Boy!

I have one Great Nephew and I always like to make him a special card. When I saw this stamp set, I thought it was ideal. He's only 6 and I think a lot of the Santa images are a bit scary, but this one is nice and friendly and even has a cuddly reindeer.


The reindeer is stamped first and masked to make it look as if he is standing in front of Santa, The image is coloured with distress markers and a water brush. I've said it before, I'm not the best colourist. I don't often do coloured-in images, but I'm quite pleased how this turned out. I couldn't resist adding a little snowman sticker to wave hello :-)


Flowersoft decorates Santa's beard and hat. I wanted it to look naturally scruffy and to stay put in the post, so used a smear of PVA to attach the flowersoft! This is a nice, big card with plenty of room inside for some spondoolies. You know what I mean :-) Maddy x
