Forever Friends Challenge - Stitching


I love participating in these challenges, i think i will do this more often as it will give me the opportunity to use many of my Forever Friends Stamps which have not yet saw ink! Last week silly me forgot that the Forever Friends Challenge changes every Monday, with all these challenge blogs i am coming across, i really forgot. The blog is here:
So the half card i had finished for last weeks challenge, was adapted a little to include real stitching around the cute santa. A friend sent me the stamped image, thank you. These stamps are new and can only be bought from http://www.glitterpot.co.uk/

I stamped and embossed the text Joy all over the red and green card. I added punched circles around the image. Added the die cut greeting onto and voila! Added glitz it glue to the white bits of santas outfit. Isnt he adorable?
As well, this card has been made using all scraps of card i had left over. My tip, is that i have been putting my box full of scrap ends in front of me, before reaching for new papers and cards. This way i have been using my scraps up!

Watermark Ink Pad
Holographic Powder
Red & Green cardstock
Needle and Red thread
