Monthly Christmas Card Challenge - January

Here are the second set of 5 Christmas 
cards for my personal monthly challenge.
I did get them done in January, although they are 
just now being posted. I did not, however, finish
the last 5 of my Christmas gift tags that are
also part of my personal monthly challenge.
I will have to make them up with February's gift tags.

Holly Jolly Santa

I stamped the main image from the SU Gifts of joy stamp set in memento
tuxedo black ink, and colored it in with SU real red and old olive markers.
I cut it out with a nestibilities labels twenty-three die, and sponged it with
 SU real red ink. I embossed the SU wild wasabi card base with the cuttlebug
wedding suite set embossing folder. I used a starburst metallic gel pen to
make dots at all of the embossed intersections, as well as for Santa's belt
on the main image. I cut an oval out of SU designer paper, then trimmed
the edges to fit in the corner of the card. I stamped the sentiment
from the SU holly jolly Christmas set in encore gold ink, and finished
it off with a gold ribbon bow.
