Santa, Baby

It's Samm turn as Dare-Host this week at Daring Cardmakers and she'd like us to show some 
Moustaches, Tashes, Mustaches and Furry Facial Hair
on your cards this week!

I've gone down the (obvious!) route this week with Santa, and my favourite Festive colours - Aqua, Red and Kraft card.

My card is base on the Mojo Monday sketch, with lots of cool tags and labels. I've used corrugated card as a base layer and run a paint dabber over to highlight (Jenni Bowlin 'Malted Milk') then layered with gingham paper and ruffed the edges up. I've used a strip of hessian sack and added strips of this fab October Afternoon paper decorated with ribbon and seam binding. The corrugated stars have been embellished with buttons, hessian twine with little beads tied onto the ends.

Thanks for reading :)
