Merry Monday #58 - Nordic Santa

Hello Friends,
Today's post is for this weeks Merry Monday Sketch Challenge.  I have two cards for you this week, I wanted to try a couple of different ideas, so although they are similar, they have different design ideas incorporated in them. For this card I stamped the Santa on Whisper White and Paper Pierced his robe, and added S/U's Dazzling Detail. The background was embossed and I inked the embossing folder before putting it through the Big Shot.  I used two stamps one with words and the other a music stamp for the die cut tree and sponged the edges.  I finished off with Pearls and a Star.  I have put the other card in a separate post.
