OSAAT #193 - Seeing Red

The theme this week at One Stitch at a Time is 'Seeing Red'. I'm using the image 'Busted ' by Stitchy over at Stitchybear Digi Outlet. I think Santa is seeing red in more ways than one!! This is going to be the Christmas card for my son and DIL as my son breeds dogs and I think they'll appreciate this one.

I've used a large square card by Joanna Sheen. The white paper was embossed with a Crafter's Companion embossalicious folder and that was matted on to Papermill red card. The image was coloured with my Promarkers and then cut with a Spellbinders grand nestie circle. I drew round another of the circles so that it was just slightly larger than the previous one and then I cut it by hand. I wanted just a thin touch of red round the image. To make his belt and boots look shiny I used some Ranger's Glossy Accents. 'Happy Christmas' is cut in gold card and I used an All Occasions die by Robert Addams. The gold stars are the waste from a Joanna Sheen Signature die 'Starburst'.

Please check the challenge blog for details of the prizes on offer. One of the prizes will be 3 Promarkers from Creative Craft World.

  1. I'm back lol - What a gorgeous Christmas card Hazel, love the embossing folder you have used, think I am going to have to put it on my 'wish list' so classy and versatile. I agree, think your son and DIL are going to really appreciate this card :) :) :) Hugs Jane xxxx

  2. Oh poor Santa ....I would imagine the dogs your son and DiL breed are much too well bred to treat such an important visitor in such a way. I do love this card though ....cannot get over how you can hand cut a circle so perfectly. Your crisply embossed backing paper shows this great image off to fullest advantage. A great Christmas card Hazel. Love Ingrid xxx ♥

  3. Hazel,
    This is one of my favorite images. Just so funny and always brings a smile to my face. Your embossing folder is just lovely, I have never seen that one before.
