Navy Blue Santa Claus Christmas Card.

Hello there,
And happy Fri-yay to you! My littlest kid has no school today (inset day) so we are off out to the trampolining place in town for a pre-birthday treat with him and a couple of his mates but I wanted to share another card with you today from the Signs of Santa bundle.
We made this card at last monts class which reminds to remind you that TODAY if the last day you can reserve a place at my All Day Christmas Class. I am running it on two days, Monday 15th October and Saturday 20th October. I have three places left at Mondays class but just one (or I can squeeze two at a push) for the Saturday class. It's a highlight in the cardmaking calendar with lots of ladies and this year is sure to be a lot of fun again with loads of festive makes, music, mince pies and more!
OK, back to today's card. I went with a less traditional colour combo for a change and I really like it, do you?
 We coloured Santa in with our blends using both Navy pens (light and dark,) Ivory, Dark Petal Pink, Light Smoky Slate and I used a touch of Light Pool Party on the white areas to accent them.
 I stamped and coloured him on regular whisper white card (my prefered card for blends colouring) then die cut a second santa from thick white card so I could pop him up easily. Now, I totally could have skipped this step and it probably would have been fine but I'd have used many more dimensionals to ensure he stayed rigid so it's great if the dies allow.
 I totally started by casing my own card (HERE) for this design but changed up almost all the elements to make this a different card.
Casing your own designs (or others too, of course with credit to the original) is a great way to kick start your mojo if you're feeling stuck but as you can see you can totally make it your own too! Why not give it a go this weekend?
And don't forget to reserve our place at my All Day Class by the end of today :-)
