Crafty Sentiments "Christmas in June" Challenge

I'm entering this challenge even though all my Christmas crafting items were tucked away in a corner, I felt they needed dusting off, to give them a little "outing" and this challenge from  Crafty Sentiments fitted the card I made perfectly, as their theme is Christmas In June.

The card had an oblong aperture in the front the card, and I stamped the Santa image onto the inside of the card, so it was visible through the aperture. I coloured the Santa Claus' suit, hat and mittens Berry Red, and gave him a caramel coloured belt and boots. I used pearl gems to simulate the snow. Then for the sentiment I  used a stamp which I've had for ages, since the first Christmas I crafted, but not used yet.  I matted that onto red card, and stuck 3 pearl hearts onto the side of the sentiment.

Thank you for viewing my blog, I hope you enjoy my card as much as I enjoyed making it!
