I wanted to do some Santa cards so turned to the sketch from Freshly Made Sketches

Santa stamp from SU, colored with colored pencils, highlights with clear star gel pen. You can't see the clear well in this picture but it gives a little shine to the snow parts. Snowflake punch from Martha Stewart. Ribbons from my shoebox of scrap ribbons.  Admit it you all have one--we crafters never throw anything away. It just might be exactly what you need sometime.
I backed the Santa with a silver glitter circle. I started to assemble and couldn't buy all that smooth white background so ran it through the Big Shot with Cuttlebug snowflake IP. There was a little clear space at the bottom so I added the Happy Christmas from SU. Just looks like a happy card.
