Completed Santa

Whew!  I wouldn't have thought that this project would have taken quite this amount of time because it was an easy process.  It was an easy project but as we all know life gets in the way, but I finished this project up last night and can post the finished copy.  I used scrapbook papers for the background and used my Cricut Cartridge Christmas Cheer to cut out the lettering and trees.  I love putting projects together, it always seems like such a great way to finish up something that you've been working on and such satisfaction in the completed project.  Obviously you can completely paint the background if you prefer, use a variety to materials to decorate the cards such as sequins, brads, or found objects.  How about instead of using scrapbook papers using wrapping paper instead?  If you do something with this Santa face I would love to see the finished project, in spite of the length of time that it took me to complete it was very quick and easy.  I actually did four of these cards but am only posting the two that I liked the best.  This guy would look lovely done with either watercolor pencils, or even regular colored pencils. 

I'm not sure what the next series of blog posts will be about but check back often to see what I do in the New Year.
