It's Beginning to Look Like Christmas!

November 1 Challenge Theme: Its beginning to Look Like Christmas

This wonderful fella definitely tells us it's beginning to look like Christmas when you receive that first Christmas card - or in my case receive that first Christmas list!  LOL!

KRIS KRINGLE is an awesome digi from Squigglefly.Com and was drawn by Image Artist:  Marla Shega.
To see this image or more by Marla just click on the links!  If you love chocolates, beagles, Holiday Bells, or whatever, you are going to love her work!

This is a 6x6 folded card and the one unique item I want to mention is a very frosty background directly behind Kris K.  This is achieved by mixing equal amounts of hot water and epsom salts and then taking a foam brush and painting your cardstock with the mixture and allowing it to dry.  The effect is awesome - simple looks like Jack Frost hit over nite.  Please leave them dry on alum. foil over nite.  I put mine (for this project) thru my Cuttlebug and the frost seemed to crack and become a tad whiter and sparklier but never did it fall off.   Very cool effect given to me by our friend Virginia on Scrapbook Place blog.

Meanwhile, don't forget to come over to SCRAPBOOK PLACE CHALLENGE BLOGSPOT and join in the fun.  For 2 weeks you have a chance to enter anything pertaining to our theme.  


  1. I just love images of Santa and this one is awesome! Your card is beautiful...great use of the image! Have a wonderful day!

  2. Beautiful card Linda. Your frosted background is beautiful! I have tried that technique before and love how it looks, but I've never tried embossing it. Good to know that it holds up! Lovely coloring as always!


Thank you for stopping by. Please leave a little love!
