Santa Says.....

Hello.  Welcome.  A little bit grey today so I've taken the chance to play with the new tutorial over at MFP.  It shows how to make a Pleated Skirt Card.  Never tried this before but I liked the look of the DT's cards and I found it's a fun and easy way to add interest to your cards.  

I had an idea to go blue and snowflakes and santa.  Well, it ended up dots instead of snowflakes but I think it gives a fun result.  I used Crate Paper and Making Memories patterned paper.  A piece of glitter ribbon and a silver metal embellishment from Korthobby completes the background.  I stamped, embossed and coloured with promarkers the large santa head from MFP's Dear Santa set.  The sentiment is from the Nutcraker set.  

Thanks for dropping by.  Hugz
