Ho! Ho! Ho! --- Santa and his "stache"

The sketch challenge at Freshly Made Sketches caught my eye.  It seemed to me to be perfect for Santa and his "stache".  I love those moustaches and the framelit for them.  What a neat way to make a fun image even more fun.
                                                       
I decided to use Naturals White as my base cardstock followed by a layer of Mossy Meadow and then a layer of Whisper White.  Before attaching the Whisper White, however, I used my Stars embossing folder to emboss it.  For the strips, I used Designer Paper with a Mossy Meadow matte and for the square I did the same.

I coloured Santa's hat and face using my Blendabilities and then mounted him using Dimensionals.  I attached the moustache using Dimensionals as well.  Then I stamped the "ho! ho! ho!" from Good Greetings onto Whisper White and cut around the sentiment to make it into a word bubble.  Before attaching it I sponged around the perimeter using Mossy Meadow ink.

To finish the card, I added some holly to Santa's hat and also some Silver Dazzling Details glitter glue to his beard and moustache.

    1. Thanks so much, Kim. I wanted patterns that would suggest Christmas without taking over the card. I think these patterns do just that.
