Santa Peace

Hello, everyone!  Today I am sharing a card featuring the December progressive challenge image from Gerda Steiner Designs called Santa Peace.  I received this image for free since I joined the challenge last month.


I coloured Santa with Prismacolor pencils and fussy-cut so I could pop him up with foam tape. I added Martha Stewart crystal glitter on the white parts of his hat and suit. The kraft background is die-cut with Lawn Fawn Snowy Backdrop and I added some die-cut stitched landscapes from Poppystamps. The patterned paper is very old leftover snippets from my stash, as are the strips of red glitter foam. To finish it off I added a tiny snow-covered tree.


Just like yesterday I have another photo bomb to share. My little elf Eli has sneaked into the photo of my Santa card. As soon as Eli saw Santa, he got very excited and started singing "Here Comes Santa Claus"! Eli doesn't want to miss a day to link up over at DL.ART's Third Annual Elf Antics Linky! If you have a little elf, you will want to join Eli, Archi, Ron, Daisy, and Hope in their funny elf antics.

I would also like the join the following challenges: Artistic Inspirations AG Christmas UE; Beccy's Place AG UE; Brown Sugar AG 2/2; Bugaboo Catch the Bug Christmas Chaos Day 1 - AG with Here Comes Santa Claus 1E; Bunny Zoe's Sparkle UE; Card Mania Christmas 2/3; Cardz TV Christmas or Winter 2/3; Choux Choux Paper Art Christmas Winter UE; Clique Kits December AG 2/3; Come and Get It AG Christmas 1/3; Craft Rocket AG 2/3; Craft Your Passion Always AG 2/3; Craftin Desert Divas Christmas Linky UE; Crafting by Designs December AG 2/3; Crafting from the Heart AG 2/3; Crafts Galore Encore AG 2/3; Crafty Calendar Let it Snow 1/3; Crafty Catz Let it Snow 1/3; Crafty Friends Christmas 1/3; Crafty Gals Corner AG 2/2; Crafty Girls Creations AG 2/3;Crafty Hazelnut's Patterned Paper December UE; Crafty Hazelnut's Christmas Extra December UE; Crafty Hazelnut's Christmas Time to Decorate (peace banner) UE; Creative Card Crew Cold Outside 1/3; Creative Fingers AG 2/3; Creative Ladybirds December AG 2/3; Cupcake Inspirations Let it Snow 1/3; Cute Card Thursday Festive Colours UE; Deep Ocean Santa is Coming to Town UE; Die Cut Diva's Warm and Cozy (Santa is warm and cozy in his hat, mittens, and suit) 2/4; Dies R Us Christmas 2/3; Digi Designs Winter Holidays 2/3; DL.ART December Linky UE 1/day; DL.ART Thankful Thursday Christmas 2/3; Emerald Creek Dares Holidays/Cheer 5/5;Emerald Faeries Merry Christmas 2/3; Fab 'n' Funky Santa is Coming to Town 1E; Fan-Tastic Tuesday AG with Santa Claus 1/4; Fresh Brewed AG Christmas 2/5; Get Creative Holidays 2/3; Glitter N Sparkle AG 1/3; Hiding in My Craftroom Christmas Colours 2/3; Incy Wincy Winter Wonderland 1/5; Inspiration Destination AG UE; Jo's Scrap Shack Christmas Joy 2/3; Just Keep on Creating December AG UE; Kitty Bee Aloha Friday Christmas 2/2; Let's Craft and Create Christmas 2/3; Lil Patch of Crafty Friends AG 1/3; Little Scrap Pieces Show it Off Saturday 1E; MFP Speedy Fox and Friends Red 2/5; Mod Squad Pick at least 3 Ingredients (I chose patterned paper, glitter, faux stitching, digi stamp, and die cut) UE; Natalie and Amy Christmas 2/3; Not Just Cards AG UE; One Stitch at a Time Winter UE; Papertake Weekly AG 2/5; Pattie's Creations Christmas 2/2; Penny's Paper Crafty AG 2/3; Pile It On Christmas/Winter UE; Pixie's Snippet Playground Snippets used for die-cut background, snowy landscape, patterned paper, and glitter foam 1/3; QKR Stampede Glitter 1/3; Robyn's Fetish Christmas Cards 1/3; Scrap and Craft AG Christmas 2/3; Send a Smile 4 Kids Winter Fun 4 Kids 1/3; Simon Says Stamp Monday Gentlemen 1/5; Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Let it Snow 1/5; Simon Says Stamp Work-it Wednesday Holiday Card 2/3; Sparkle N Sprinkle AG with Loose Glitter, Embossing Powder and/or Flocking UE; Sparkles Christmas Die Cuts 2/3; Suzy Bee's Bloomin' Outdoor Scene UE; Sweet Stampin' Snow Time 1/2; The Corrosive Merry Christmas 1/3; The Crafter's Cafe Use Die-Cuts and/or Punches 2/3; The 12 Months of Christmas Link-up Christmas Optional Santa 2/3 (FT); The Outlawz Friday Colouring Let it Snow 1E; The Pencil Case H = Heartfelt 2/2; Tuesday Throwdown Cute and Cuddly 2/3; Wednesday's Creative Inspirations AG Option Sketch UE; Whimsy Stamps Inspiration Holidays 2/3; Word Art Wednesday AG w Uplifting Sentiment 2/5;Your Scrapbook Place AG 2/3
