Letter for Santa


For Day 14 of Beccy's Place Month long Holiday Card challenge the prompt was the letter L.
I have chosen L for letter & letterbox.

My image has been made by combining a colouring page that was a freebie from Meljen's Designs who is now retired. This provided the frame, the heading and the cookies.

The sweet little Postie is a free image from a recent find of mine Artybarb who has loads of free digital images on her Facebook site. She is definitely with checking out.

Finally the Santa Stop Here is an old sentiment from Limited Runs Digital Stamps. I coloured the whole image in Promarkers and some really fine tipped markers from The Works. I added some accents in gold gel pen on the cookies, holly leaves and swirls.

For the layout I used the latest sketch 686 from Sketch Saturday. I thought the dimensions of the rectangle would be perfect for An A5 Card.

The card base has been covered with a red and white snowflake paper and then I added some small offcuts from the same pad for the flag sections.

I raided my self adhesive ribbons for the corner stripes and added a sentiment and a gold snowflake brad for circle embellishments.
