Santa, Baby

I wanted to make some cards for my niece and nephews who are siblings.  The first is for the youngest because it's easy to identify who it is, the next for the middle child so a bit more sophisticated and then the more contemporary take for the oldest.

Card 1 Details:  Cuttlebug embossing folder, PTI white card stock, red card stock from old stash, Recollections snowflake punch, Sharpie, Lifestyle Crafts circle die, pop dot, Glossy Accents
For this card I partially embossed a rectangle then masked it before sponging red onto the bricks.  For the hat I just free-handed a basic hat shape.

Card 2 Details:  Sizzix snow and Paper Studio brick embossing folders, Recollections snowflake punch, puffy paint, velvet paper, white Enamel Accents, Glossy Accents, Memento Lady Bug & Rhubarb Stalk mixed together, blue card stock from old stash, PTI white card stock, pop dots
This card was the logical next step after the cards above.  I sort of wish I had used an embossing folder on the white fur at the bottom.  Maybe next time.

Card 3 Details:  Fiskars sentiment, red velvet paper, PTI white card stock, scrap of black and gold card stock from old stash, Glossy Accents

I'm entering this in 52 {Christmas} Card Throwdown Pick a Fav Theme (Santa Claus/Father Christmas), Paperminutes #297 CAS Christmas, Simon Says Wednesday Anything Goes, Christmas Cards All Year 'Round Snow, Sisterhood of Crafters Handmade, Crafter's Cafe Anything Goes, City Crafter White as Main Color, Totally Gorjuss #212 Snow, Sweet Stampin' Black White & One Other Color, Addicted to Stamps & More #73 Holidays, and Totally Papercrafts #195 Ho Ho Holidays.
