Magnolia Santa

Good morning :)
I hope you are well. It's a bit dull here this morning, I can't believe I had to put the light on to see the keyboard, oh well it's only 8.30 maybe it'll brighten up.

I made this card Magnolia Santa with presents as I love this Santa, it was a bit strange painting him in blue but I think it suits him :)
I've used Pion papers, an LOTV sentiment, the gorgeous new JOY snowflake dies and I machine stitched around my image
and from The Ribbon Girl I used...
5mm Faux Hessian Natural Ribbon, 13mm Rusty Jingly Bells, Anemone Vintage Blue Cotton Paper Flowers and Stickles Stardust. 
I ruffled up the Hessian and stitched it, then sewn the jingly bells to the bottom, just to make it a bit different.

I love this so much Teresa! Adore what you've done with the ribbon and bells, can I borrow that idea? hugs, Jane xxx

Bonnie Weiss said...

You could paint Santa green with orange polka dots and he would still look fabulous, Teresa! But I have to admit, he does looks fantastic in the blues and I would prefer him this way. How in the world do you ever send these cards out to people? You must have to wrap them in boxes in order to mail them out.
