Hello Ai fans !!
Today’s card is a front and back Santa sku # U1792 , I made a chimney for him to slide down and leave gifts for the good girl in my house : )
I used the Tim Holtz brick embossing folder to create my chimney cut 2 1 1/2″ by 4 1/4″ strips in cream color card stock , emboss and ink with Tim Holtz fired brick ink , add a chimney top in gray 3/4″ by 4 1/2″ cut two inside card and out side card , use MS drippy goo punch and white glitter paper to make icicles , Stamp and fussy cut your Santa image , I colored him with colored pencils and blended with gamsol , I used zig 2way glue and diamond glitter on fur trim for beard and hat pom I used liquid applique and heat gun to puff up , glue front and back together and glue to front with Santa looking in , when you open card you will see other side of Santa.
inside my card I die cut pine branches , and used SU ornament stamps and fussy cut , I stamped them in SU real red ink and clear star glitter pen and fussy cut them out , I added sheer white bows to ornaments , I used TH picket fence whir marker for snow on my branches and the zig glue and diamond glitter , the back ground is SU bashful blue inked around edges and then from my Winter Penguins set SKU # CS3217 , I used snow flakes to stamp background and the sentiment is from the set too .
I love how this turned out , it was so much fun trying something new.
