Purple Santa


Doesn't Santa look fabulous in his purple suit. When I saw this new digi kit from Janet at Pink Gem I couldn't wait to get it and make a card. I love resizing the front page and just using that as a topper as I don't like cutting out decoupage. For those that do of course you can layer up the image. I prefer to layer with papers and embellies. I sprayed the topper with silver spray and sparkle and used a shaped card and oddments of papers with ribbon from Crafty Ribbons.The sleigh die is one I bought recently and I used Marianne poinsettia dies too. I also used a Martha Stewart star border punch. I still love my MS border punches and use them quite a bit.
