Christmas Cards All Year Long

When I read Maria's blog a week or so ago, she had a post that she was starting a blog that only post Christmas/Winter cards and she was looking for blog team members. I was thrilled when she emailed me that I could join in on the fun!! What a great idea to help us all get those Christmas cards done and provide some inspiration too!!
Today is the launch of the blog, Christmas Stampin' All Year Long so be sure to go over and check it out!! We'd love to have you join in on the fun!
For this first week Maria gave us a sketch to use. ( Have you seen her sketches? She ROCKS at them!)
Here's what I came up with~ I used fun flock on his beard, moustache and eyebrows. On his coat trim I used glitter. On the stars I used Lemon Copic Glitter Pen and for the candle glow I used Candle Light Shimmerz--it seemed appropriate, no? I also used stickles on the die cut star--quite the array of sparkle, huh? I had to alter the sketch a bit as my sentiment was too big to go on the front but I thought it turned out cute.
Supplies:
card size: 5 1/2 x 5 1/2
stamps: TAC Whimsey Santa , TAC Dare To Dream-on inside, retired
paper: Georgia Pacific
ink: Memento Tuxedo Black, cardstock, Palette Jardin Moss, Palette New Canvas, CTMH Holiday Red
others: copics, prismacolors, OMS , fun flock, copic glitter pen, shimmerz, glitter, cuttlebug snowflake embossing folder, just my type cuttlebug embossing borders, sizzlit die for star, cyrstal stickles

What a great card. I told myself that I'd start making Christmas cards early but still don't have the motivation. I'm still amazed that I got them out this past year.
