Skating Santa

Another busy week unexpectedly supply teaching for four days, so no time to do any cardmaking or blog visiting until today.  This card is for friends who support our local football team, which I need for tomorrow.  I wanted to make a Santa in the team kit of blue and white quarters and this digi stamp from Beccy's Place was perfect.  (The nickname of the fans of our football club are the Gasheads.)


The sentiment is computer generated and I coloured the image with Promarkers.  I used MB 'Stitched Rectangles' for matting and layering and I embossed a large snippet of white card with a Creative Expressions 'Snowflake Lattice' embossing folder for the background.

I am joining in the following challenges:

This is great and I think one of the joys of our hobby is being able to personalise the cards, as you've done here with the team colours.

How cool to dress Santa in the school's colors. He's very zippy in his blue & white, and I love the mats, and the fab embossing. Such fun. TFS & Hugs

That is such a clever idea to make Santa a Gashead in the school colors. I really like the font you used to print the sentiment.
