Festive Friday Link-Up Blog Hop

Hello everyone.  I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving, and welcome to Festive Friday's link up blog hop.  Terri Sproul has invited everyone who wants to come and play along by making a Christmas card and linking up to their hop.  Click on the link above to start hopping.  But since your are here now, this is my Christmas card.

I used Robin's Nest Glitter Coffee Creme Swirl and Red Glitter on Red Cardstock papers for the backgrounds, a Memory Box stamp colored with Copic Markers, and layered onto a green card stock base.  I distressed the edges of the Glitter Coffee Creme Swirl and inked with a brown ink.  Glitter was added to the Red Glitter on Red Cardstock after I die cut it.

I fussy cut Santa's bag, dry embossed it to make it poof out, and layered it over the original stamped image with foam dots.  It is subtle in the picture, but I think you get the idea.  After all, I love adding  dimension.  I also added foam dots to the entire Santa image as well.

Thanks so much for stopping by, and be sure to visit all of the other blogs to see what beautiful cards they have come up with.

Happy Holidays!
