Santa's Helper

Hello ladies.. today is "Nikolaus" day in Germany and i would love to show you my little card that i have made for this holiday. If you have had no chance to visit yesterday, you might want to click on yesterdays posting.. the is a little candy for somebody of you, to celebrate this holiday.
The card is pretty straight forward. I have used Santa Edwin from this years Christmas Collection and the sack he is sitting on is from last years collection. The sentiment is by Amuse Artstamps. Check out the lovely papers :-) got them though Magnolia-lioucs and of course since they are made by Magnolia.. they just simply match and it so much less to worry about. Oh, on Santa's hat i have used a mix of Liquid Applique and in between the gaps i squeezed Star Dust Stickles. Unfortunately it is hard to tell on the pictures but on all the white parts of his coat i have used Sakura pens. The puff a little bit and it really does look super cute. Since this is a boy-ish card i wanted to be careful with any flowers or frilly stuff, but i could not resist to dress the red circle layer with some Candy Cane Red Stickles.

Other supplies mentioned than above:
the wide jute was given to me by my wonderful friend Carole.
Taffetta ribbon and Kraft Card stock is by Stampin up
i have used a circle punch to round the left side of my sentiment
to age all my layers i used Tim Holtz Distressing tool and Distress Inkpads
Around the sack i airbrushed a bit with E50 copic Sketch
Hero Arts Pearl Stickers
Tombow Mono glue
White Gel pen
Pop up dots to raise Edwin off the sack

All those very cute Magnolia stamps you see in my artwork can be purchased in Sweden - link is in blog roll!

Thank you for visiting me today i appreciate your time.
