Merry Monday #81 - Santa

This week's theme at Merry Monday is to use Santa himself on your cards.  I used a stamp from Habico (NBUS) inked in Cherry Cobbler, some scraps of red for the scallop borders and mats, a Sizzix holly embossing folder, and finished it with cherry cobbler seam binding. Then I decided it needed a bit more so added a Frosted Finishes embellishment from Stampin' Up! And here is the inside


The stamp is Penny Black which I have just acquired as I thought it was perfect for the insides of cards.
