Ho, Ho, Ho...Santa -- Merry Monday Challenge #101

Hi everyone, it's time again for another Merry Monday challenge.  This week we are to use grey, red and white on our card.  Here's our inspiration photo...

It took me all week to come up with idea for this card.  Every idea I came up just wasn't working out.  Finally Saturday night, I came up with a easy card that I just love.

I used Gina K's "Pure White" card stock and Stampin' Up's "Cherry Cobbler" card stock and grey and white snowflake designer paper that I don't know which manufacturer it came from as it wasn't a full sheet of paper.  I hate when I do that.  I need to remember to keep the edge that tells me who designed the paper.  Anyway, the "Santa" and "Ho" stamps came from "Santa, I Believe" from Flourishes.  I love this Santa.  He is so much like the Santa I remember from my childhood.  I stamped "Santa" in Stampin' Up's "Smoky Slate" ink and the "Ho" stamp in SU's "Cherry Cobbler" ink.  I finished the card off with SU's "Cherry Cobbler" baker's twine.

Thank you for stopping by and if you want to see more beautiful grey, red and white cards, please follow this link to Merry Monday's Challenge #101.  You won't be disappointed.
