Cards in Envy - Santa is Coming to Town!

Hello!  Can you believe it’s December already?  It will be Christmas soon, and Cards in Envy is getting in the spirit.  Our challenge theme for the next two weeks is “Santa is Coming to Town”.  Create an A2 sized card (4.25″ x 5.5″) that depicts Santa Claus in some way.  Remember to keep your card flat enough to fit in an envelope to mail at the first class postage rate.

For my design team sample, I wanted to make a card using the cute Santa stamp I used on an earlier card.  So I looked for the stamp set… and searched for the stamp set… and looked through just about every possible place in my craft room I could think of looking in.  And I still haven’t found the set.  Major bummer!  So I had to resort to a much different stamp.  This one does have a Santa… a very, very subtle one.  Can you find him?  🙂  I added some white shimmer paint to parts of the image to make it look like sunlight glistening on snow. The layout for this card is OWH Stars and Stamps sketch #236.
