Dear Santa

It's beginning to feel a lot like Christmas....dare I say. Especially with this new release digital stamp from The East Wind
Here is my Instagram sneak peek

And here is my reveal. Isn't she darling?
As you can see below I have made an explosion card and adhered my coloured image to the lid. i figured she looks as though she was dreaming and going with the title I thought... . . .
                                                                  why not pop a 3D santa in the middle :)

I coloured the stamp with polychromos pencils and inktense pencil for the red edge. I glued it to the lid of the explosion card and then gold heat embossed the edge. I decorated the card with some kaisercraft christmas papers i had lying around and a little green whimsy farm twine. i also used a tim holtz alteration die to die cut out some snowflakes. i stuck those onto the side tabs on the inside of the card(they are a little hard to see though in the pics).
It will be a sweet little gift to give to someone at Christmas don't you think?
