Here Comes Santa Claus

This card was created for Winter Wonderland Christmas Sweeties! and Secret Crafter No Patterned Paper.  My first thought for Christmas Sweeties was actually Halloween Candy , the trick was to make a sweetie card with no patterned paper.  Then I remembered I had  a Sizzix Decorative Strip Candy die which I knew would be ideal for both challenges. 

To create this card I used Stamps: Magnolia Santa Hug.  Vap Scrap Candy Cane.  Cardstock: White hammered, white glitter, red glitter.  Papers: Red paper.  Inks: Memento Tuxedo Black.  Colouring: Copic markers Skin E000/E00/E11,R20.  Beard C1.  Clothes and Background R24/R29.  Boots E25/E35.  Sakura gel pen Stardust 744, medium 50.  Dies: Sizzix Decorative Strip Candy.  Punch: Martha Stewart Scallop Dot.

Hints and Tips
If you don't have a DP to match your project stamp your own.  Smaller stamps tend to make the best background patterns.
