Sant Clause Is Coming To Town

Good Morming all!
It's Wednesday & some of you will be expecting to see a Dude Time Doodles card!
I'm afraid it's a week off for the Dude's & Dudette's 
so, I have another card to share with you instead!

The image is from The Crafty Pad Designs,
I used a red A6 card blank for the base.
To that I added a matt of red card which was embossed using a 
Cuttlebug Snowflake embossing folder  then matted onto a 
added a matt of green textured card then added a piece of ribbon 
before attaching to the base.
The layout is a sketch

The image, cute little Santa that he is, was coloured with Promarkers
I fussy cut around him then matted onto some green textured card,
then some silver mirror card. 
The corners were rounded with a corner punch.
I wrapped some silver & white fibres around then attached.

I then added a little ribbon bow & some Snowflakes which were cut with 
a Marianne Creatable die. The  sentiment was computer generated  
then matted & layered onto the green & silver card
I hope you like him!
