Ho!, Ho! ,Ho! Santa..613 Avenue Create DT card

This card was fun and also an adventure..I had to create a larger star as my dies were too small to start with ..then I stuck it to some watercolour card with temporary fix spray glue..Then went to town with Brushos..thes are so cool,and amazing to watch pop to life..I wanted a bright like the lights on a Christmas tree background ..For my first attempt I am rather tickled pink with these too..will no doubt play again sometime.I Coloured the image in Polychromos pencils onto Neenah card,and fussy cut him out..I then used a XCut alphabet die set for the Ho! Ho! s.. I cut the center of the star out and left a small white trim around the edge to highlight it ..then I matted it onto Craft card..Yep I know I use it loads ,but its recycled and its doing a bit for the enviroment as well as looks good and does not give the shine of gold card..Any way if you get a chance do get a hold of some of these tiny pots they are amazing..Thank you for visiting xx
