Craft Your Passion has a new challenge calling for "Stitching - Real or Faux" and this is my inspiration card. The Design Team has created several ideas to inspire you and encourage you to try your hand! Go HERE to see their samples and join the challenge.
This "Crescent Santa" is one of my favorites from my Santa collection. I colored it with Copics and added Diamond Glaze to the star and bell to provide dimension & a little bling (that shine does not show up in the photo, unfortunately!) I added the strip of blue and white gingham and the blue layer with faux stitching. I used blue embroidery thread to sew the tab and the image layers. Distress Ink was used to distress the edges of the card.
