Sandra Caldwell's "Mr Santa"...

Mr. Santa Digi by Sandra Caldwell
A simple Z fold can add a lot interest to a card.  The Kraft paper with an intricate gold design imprinted on it adds elegance & sparkle while the heavily textured cord provides the design with a warm earthiness.  The image has been colored with Copics and Prismacolor Pencils.  Santa's hand and beard have been cut out of the frame and allowed to 'rest' on a single, deeply etched score line - it looks like a window sill.  When opened the sentiment is revealed along with plenty of room to write a message.

  4. This is stunning, Ginny! I love the overall design and that there is plenty of room to write inside (very important, that). The paper choices couldn't be any more perfect; that gold and then the sparkly brown 'frame' are awesome and go so well with the rope-like ribbon. Of course, your coloring is perfect, and I like how his beard and hand come out of the frame drawing the eye into the design. Another winner! Merry Christmas to you! Eat, drink and be merry!!!
