Santa & Merriness

Hello, my friends! =) Hope your week is off to a great start. Here is a card that I made using a few fun stamps from Purple Onion Designs.


I adore this jolly Santa that Stacey Yacula created for The Sweetest Season collection. He just makes me smile! =)


Mr. Santa is stamped on Papertrey Ink's Rustic White cardstock, colored with Copic markers then fuzzy cut out.


Aside from  a few Japanese washi tapes, I also stamped images from Stephanie Ackerman's Merriness set on the card base for a little interest. The sentiment is from Sweet Season Sentiments set.

That's all I have for now. Please check out Purple Onion Designs Blog for more ideas using stamps from Purple Onion Designs! =)


Have a lovely day and thanks for stopping by!
