RI SOTW - Candy Cane Santa

We have a new Stamp of the Week over at The House That Stamps Built and it's this fun little Candy Cane Santa (303-I).  I decided to take a vintage turn with him and paired him with My Mind's Eye Lost and Found Chrstmas papers for the background.  I stamped Merry Christmas (1141-F) at the bottom of the text background.

I cut the bottom sheet of patterned paper in half and was able to stretch it to make two cards using this image. Santa was colored using Copic markers and the background was sponged with Distress Inks while it was still in the die.

The striped ribbon is from Stampin' UP! and I colored the plain twine with one of the Copic markers I used on Santa's suit.

Please be sure to head over to The House That Stamps Built to get the details for picking this image up for 50% off and to see the other fun cards the rest of the team has made with it!

Thanks for stopping by!
