bah humbug 16

As I was pressed for time this week, it was fortunate that the challenge from Bah Humbug was for Father Christmas - I knew exactly which image I would use, as I bought the My Craft Studio Christmas cd last year just because I fell in love with this Santa image! The problem of what size to use was solved when I found the Tim Holttz snowflake die on a stall at the Thetford Papercraft show last Sunday - I have been looking for this since getting a Christmas card using it (and getting a Big Shot machine for Christmas!). The dark blue square card was cut down from A5, the snowflakes from white glitter card (also from Thetford) and the print sized to match the snowflakes. Santa was matted onto what I thought was silver mirri - turned out to be holographic silver in daylight - and pearlescent blue card, and I added a few dots of white glitter to some of the snowflakes. All in all, a very simple card this week!


  1. Well it might be simple Veronica but it's absolutely lovely. The image is just great and I must look through my huge stash of MCS to see if I've got it. Really looks like he's performing a little bit of magic.

  2. OOOh this is gorgeous! I LOVE your Santa. Actually he looks very much like a friend of ours. LOL Great composition with the snowflakes. xxD

  3. What a lovely card a proper traditional Santa. Thanks for sharing

  4. This is indeed a fabulous Santa image and he looks wonderful against the dark blue card with the white snowflake accents. Thank you for another super DT example for us at Bah! Humbug!
