Loves Rubberstamps Card Challenge - Christmas in July

 Well I'm back with another card for Loves Rubberstamps and this week's challenge is Christmas in July. Our sponsor this week is QKR Stampede and we were allowed to pick an digital image which I picked 'Santa's List'. I coloured Santa using my Prismacolor pencil except for his list which I used some Distress reinkers which you can find in the store here; http://www.lovesrubberstamps.net/category_250/Tim-Holtz-Distress-Ink-Reinkers-from-Ranger-Ink.htm to age the paper. I then added  some Twinkling Clouds Glitter Flocking on his beard, his eyebrows and his hair which I also added some Moonrise Glitter Tinsel on the ruffles on his suit. For my card, I started off using Chocolate Chip for my base which is a 5"x 7" finished card size. I used My Mind's Eye collection called 'Holly Jolly' for the rest. I added 4 layers and then cut out a border using the latest die from Memory Box Collection called 'Gabriella Border'. I added some brushable glue to the various parts of the die which I then added some green and red glitter. I then stamped the sentiment from Flourishes called 'Dear Santa' which you can find it here in the store; http://www.lovesrubberstamps.net/item_1330/DEAR-SANTA-Clear-Stamp-Set-from-Flourishes.htm
Again I colored the sentiment using Tim Holtz distress reinkers and cut them out individually to place on the Christmas list. I then added some Top Boss reinker along with some Age Hunter Embossing Enamel, heat set, while it was still hot added some Fresh Green & Green Crushed Glass Glitter all Fran-tage' Elements by Stampendous in the left hand corner. I added a Cherry Cobbler Seam Binding bow on top of the ornament on the paper.
