I had a special order from a customer for a Christmas card for her granddaughter; she specifically asked for a Santa!  When I saw this week’s Freshly Made Sketches sketch, I was thrilled; it was a perfect sketch for what I had in mind.  Here’s the sketch:

And here’s my BIG card:

This measures a huge 6” square of Santa Claus goodness!  I used a retired SU Santa image, some cute coordinating red & sage papers and a card base of textured Very Vanilla.  She had requested her name on the card, so I computer-generated the sentiment and added it to a little die-cut mitten:

And of course, Santa’s hat is all glittered up, too:

This also qualifies for the Christmas Card All Year Round challenge, which is Anything Goes!  I just love this card, and I hope she does too!  Thanks for looking today!  If you have any questions, just pop me a line!
