Here comes Santa Claus!

 I know….chances are most of us are not ready to even think of Santa Claus! My goal was to complete a Christmas Card for the Merry Monday Challenge.  Santa just happened to be the image that worked for me!

I went with a rosette and ribbon theme. My rosette was made with a 1" x 12" strip of cardstock, scored every 1/4".  Santa is actual part of the Believe paper pack, cut out with a circle punch.

I finished out the inside with a saying from Ornamental Cheer.  The reindeer are from a zip strip on the Believe paper pack.

Supplies by Close To My Heart, except where noted:

D1520 Ornamental Cheer
X7145B Believe Paper Pack
1385 White Daisy Cardstock
Retired Holiday Red Ink
Z2155 Topiary Ink
Retired Embossing Folder-SU

I have also entered my card in the following challenges:
