Aussie Santa

Hello Everyone. A Christmas card that is inspired by the Christmases that I know. Not a snowflake in site. Maybe I should have named this one “Santa’s Holiday”. After he has finished his delivery rounds he decides it’s time to relax somewhere that is a warmer than his home.

Today I made this card based on the challenge from the 52 Christmas Card Throwdown challenge blog and I am also entering to be a part of their upcoming Design Team. Their October Technique Challenge is Masking 

They are asking for Christmas cards that feature Masking of any kind. So this leaves things quite open for people to get creative. For my card I decided to use “Digital Masking” – so in my computer I placed the digital Aussie Santa image on top of the Aussie Outback Shack digital image – so in effect “Masking” the image. Both of these images are from Make It Crafty.  This is one of my favourite things about digital images being able to combine images to make a scene.

This card also utilised a sketch for pulling the card together and it is Sketch Saturday #534 – it’s fast becoming a favourite of mine.

The card this time around use this sketch but with only minor changes. The main image ended up being 9cm X 9cm this was the only change though.

Thanks for stopping by to have a look at my card project today. And as always before you go I would like to leave you with this last thought

Image result for 56 days till christmas

Oh my – I am so behind in my card making! This countdown is till the day of Christmas. But for sending cards I have only – 31 days until I need to have my cards in the post!!! :0

Have a Happy Crafty Making Kind of Day,
❤ Tracy
