Santa Claus is Coming to Town!
Ho! Ho! Ho! That's the song inspiration for today's card.

And the main criteria for the challenge over at The Paper Variety.
The layout is based on the sketch at Sketch Saturday, and I'm inspired by the photo montage at the Simon Says challenge and My Time to Craft to create a vintage card. Christmas Crafting and Try it on Tuesday want the big guy, so here he is! The main image is part of Victorian Santas Dominoes page from theHouseAcrosstheBay. I received this for the last challenge at Papercraft Star. And I'm playing there again this week in their tree challenge.
Make My Monday's challenge this week is seasonal, with added glitter. I didn't really fancy using stickles this time, so tried something new with glittery holographic embossing powder (my tip for today). I dabbed gold acrylic paint on the chipboard flourish and immediately smothered it in ep. This is the result! Now I can have glittery finish in any colour! Why gold? Well, Kaboodle Doodles list out red, green, white & gold. So I'm opting for just one instead of all four.
I also used ep to highlight the furry parts of Santa's coat, using Perfect Pen. The sparkly embossing allows me to play at Crimbo Crackers, The ABC Challenge and Dream Valley Challenges. And it's all stitched up for Creative Craft Challenges. There's a bit of falling snow in the image, so I'm pushing it a bit to play at Top Tip Tuesday and Hooked on Craft.

For Cupcake Craft Challenges, no dp has been used here. The main background is stamped and the other panels are embossed cs and ribbons. The sentiment is a peel off sticker.
Also playing the Christmas challenges at Paper Crafting Journey, Moving Along with the Times, Christmas Cards All Year 'Round, ABC Christmas Challenge & Simply Create Too. Other challenges entered include Speedy the Cat's Friends (I love gems & pearls), Inky Impression Challenges (use ribbon), Crafty Ann's (gold, tree, glitter)and the anything goes challenge at Cute Card Thursday.
