Christmas Card - CMIT Featured Designer Challenge and YCU #4

As you all know (or not), in Israel we don't celebrate Christmas and so the whole Christmas spirit and decorations and colors is not part of my culture. But the plenitude of Christmas cards and challenges on the web this time of year, made me want to challenge myself and try to create a Christmas card.

I decided to go with green and red glitter pages that are so "Christmas" spirit. I created the cute Santa with a few dies: circle and scallop circle for the face and beard, scallop rectangle for the hat. For the tiny circles for the nose and the top of the hat I used an office page puncher. 

The green tag was cut free hand, the beautiful Christmas tag is from Graphics 45 (won it a few months ago from Simon Says Stamp and I am so happy I got to use it).

I embossed Kraft paper for the background and added distress ink vintage photo, and to finish the card I added the gold ribbon in order give it all a festive look.




 I am submitting this card to the following challenges:
