Another ho,ho,ho-liday card...

Season's Greetings

Hooray for Friday! Today marks a training day for me at work and nearly the start of the half term holidays - woo hoo! Another reason to celebrate today is that it's the final day of the Uniko Studio sneak peeks and all the products will be available to purchase from tomorrow! :)

If you've missed the fun of the peeks this week you can check them out here, here, here and here. (Once again, said in my best air stewardess voice with accompanying actions *wink*).

I think Bev of Uniko Studio has saved the sweetest and cutest set for last. She says that she doesn't do 'cute' but this set begs to differ. Jolly Christmas is such a sweet set that features Saint Nic himself, a sweet tree and great sentiments. I mean c'mon, how could I not resist inking up Santa? He's adorable!

tips and tricks
  • To help 'ground' Santa and not have him appear to be floating, I stamped a subtle line of trees from Background Builders: Christmas.
  • I added a lot of dimension to santa by giving his fur trim some sparkles (Glitter), his beard some texture (Fluff), and his boots and belt some polish (Glossy Accents).
Here's a close up of Santa. I wish you could feel just how fuzzy his beard is! :)

 Season't Greetings Santa Close Up
Check out the Uniko Studio blog for more deets on this super-sweet set. And of course, be sure to check out the Uniko Studio blog for the full release reveal tomorrow - it's a great one!

Thank you so much for checkin' in today; whether you've just tuned in today or have been here all week, every visit is very much appreciated.

Adorable Santa - and the textures you've added are such special touches! Thanks again for the 'grounding' tips; something I really need to pay attention to, as my images float too often! Fabulous showcase of Jolly Christmas; off to work feeling festive!

What kind of paper do you use? I saw that pattern on your white cards too and I love it. Thanks in advance!

Aimes said...

Hi Aaga. I use Papertrey Ink card and I impress the pattern on to it using Papertrey Ink's Canvas and Linen impression plate. HTH! :)

Fab card! It's those touches like the fluff, and Glossy Accents that make a CAS card really a wow card ;) Thanks for the inspiration, Rx
