santa in red & blue

A different colour combo for today's santa
~ Ü ~

 Entering these challenges

The sizzix chipboard flower has been embossed, curled and inked in red. Topped with a flower gem.

The snowflake sits on a sanded red chipboard dingbat from sizzix.

The light blue background is a piece of wrapping paper which has been embossed and sanded. 
Tip for today - sanding light papers would flatten the embossing. To avoid that, line the paper up back on the folder and sand away!

Image from the House Across the Bay, embossing folders from papermania & CB, dies from sizzix & LC, fired brick DI, other material from my stash

Thanks for stopping by!
