STAMPtember® Santa At The Beach

Did you know that there are only 85 days left to Christmas!
Now is definitely the time to make a start on your cards if you haven't already ;-)

This time on the ABC Christmas Challenge Carissa is our hostess and the theme is

'T' is for TRANSPORT

I used a new Santa At The Beach Stamp and Die Set, don't you just love a surfing Santa!

My nephew lives down under so I thought this would be perfect for him. He used to design cards and calendars for one of the large stationary producing companies in the UK so his card does have to be a bit extra special ;-)

I inked the 'sea' with Tumbled Glass and Stormy Sky Distress Inks before spritzing and splattering with Sparkle Shimmer Spritz, it is lovely and sparkly IRL. If you don't have this Spritz, then you definitely NEED it! My fave product at the mo' ;-)

Thanks so much for looking, I really appreciate you taking the time to pop by XXX Please leave me a comment so I know that you have been ;-)

Hang 10 Santa! My parents live in Florida now so I always get such a kick out of summer-themed Christmas cards. I love the die cuts you've used to create this fun scene and the sequins on the waves. Awesome touch. Thanks for sharing it with us at Aud Sentiments, good luck and hope to see you again in our next challenge!
Jennifer, DT
