Santa Claus Is Coming To Town

Today is the final day of
Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge #399 and I wanted to add my last holiday card for 2020 to this weekly favorite. If you missed it - there is another challenge beginning on Monday, December 21, 2020. I have found the past sketches to be most helpful in making my holiday cards this year.

Onto a Kraft card base, I adhered a panel of green cardstock followed by a panel of patterned paper depicting Santa in various activities. In keeping with the sketch, the other elements were added using vellum and various patterned papers. The tree was punched from cardstock and added with foam tape. One of the banners was also added with foam tape to add more dimension. Wink of Stella was used to add glimmer to the tree. The gems were added. I omitted a sentiment for the challenge but added a small one (Happy Holidays) over the bottom banner when I mailed the card. The inside was lined with vanilla cardstock and decorated with another punched tree and the sentiment, "Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas".

I hope you'll visit the weekly challenge: AHSC399!
