Talking of goodies, this fabulous stamp I've used was in the surprise package I received from the lovely Dorte (along with lots of other wonderful things). It is the Stampavie Sarah Kay Santa and I think he is just super with his sack of toys, especially the little panda peeping out.
I decided to try something totally different with this card and used some scraps of paper on white card to make a checkerboard background with a Marianne Creatables LR0161 lacy edge. After colouring the santa with Promarkers I cut him out leaving a little white card round the edge so he would stand out and attached him with sticky pads. The sentiment was saved from a decoupage sheet and also attached with sticky pads.
I'm pleased with the result, especially as it's a great way to use up all of those old scraps of paper and card but I really would love to know what you think of it too.
