I don't actually feature Father Chrismas very often on my cards but I do have a few Crafty Individuals stamps so I chose one of those. Having stamped him onto cream card I added a little colour with a sponge and Adirondak red pepper and pesto ink pads. Then I cut it out, mounted it onto a narrow red frame, and then onto some thick card. It looked a bit 'flat' so I added some orange/gold glitter to the candles on the tree (He'd set his beard alight if he carried it with lit candles on wouldn't he?!), and sprinkled a very little around the frame which gave it just the lift it needed. I then triple embossed the panel with UTEE. I used the same red for the base card, folding it for my preferred card size - A6, and cut away about a third of the front. The remaining front area I covered with some striped paper, a docraft download I think, but then I struggled to find a toning paper for the other half. In the end I went for a complete contrast of off-white with a tiny greeting in gold all over it, and enhanced its edge with a fiskars punch so it showed the red card back through the leaves. Then I mounted the Santa panel and added a matching greeting using a Hot off the press stamp.
