Our sponsor this week is Stitchy Bear's Digi Outlet! For my card i am using the Surfin' Santa image created by Stitchy Stamps. I love the Santa was hanging out on a surf board in swim trunks!!

I printed out Surfin' Santa on white card stock and colored him with Copic markers and then fussy cut around him.

Then i pulled out a white card base and placed a wave stencil over the bottom of the card. I masked off the top part of the stencil because i only wanted waves along the bottom of the card. Then i used three blue distress inks to color in the stencil.

Next i removed the mask and stencil, then added the Surfin' Santa to the card with foam tape. Above him i stamped Merry Christmas in black ink.

  3. Dear Dana, Your card turned out so great! It is such fun experiment to see, how different cards look even when people use the same main object on it. I like your surfin Santa a lot.
