AAA Cards Game 30

The last of AAA Card's Christmas challenges begins today and we want you to get creative with plaid.

I love all the images Victoria comes up with, and this is one of my all time favourites. Loving those tartan mugs!

 For my card I did a bit of paper piecing by stamping the Santa image once onto card and once onto tartan paper. Then I cut out the Santa and mounted him onto pads for dimension.

I stamped a greeting onto a square of white card and then matted it onto the same tartan paper.

Finally I added a bit of stickles glitter to his cuffs, coat border, hat border and pompom. This close up shows my paper piece cutting quite clearly - maybe a bit too clearly!

Stamps: Uniko Studio, Jolly Christmas
Ink: Memento, tuxedo black
Paper: Paper Cellar
Embellishments: Stickles

I'm just finishing off today by sharing my December Daily for the 11th. As always I'm linking it at Let's December Daily.

Here's the album overview. As I was so pleased with how the sequin pocket peeped through several pages - here - I've added a strip of coloured transparency to today's page which will do the same. I may even go back and insert a few more like this if I get time.

Here's a closer look at the journal card:

And the photo:

So pleased you had time to drop by today, thanks for your visit. Hope to see your entry at AAA Cards and I'm sending a little Christmas sparkle your way.
