November 11, 2010 Monthly Challenge Entry

Hi, everyone!
The past two days I have been working on a Christmas card, and it meets the challenge, so I'm entering it on their forum! The challenge is to create a Christmas card using either (or both) of their SVG sets, Santa's North Pole Workshop, or Christmas Cookie Party Collection. (My card uses files from the Santa's North Pole Workshop Collection).
I created a tri-shutter card base, which you can find a tutorial for here. I chose colors and papers from my stash of Stampin' Up papers. I used Baja Breeze, Riding Hood Red and Whisper White. I used some designer paper from the Candy Lane (retired), Ski Slope (retired) and Bride Specialty papers. I cut the santa and Mrs. Clause files, and they are embellished with some 3D Paint I picked up from JoAnns. It's made by Duncan, and it is called Glittering Crystal. I applied it very sparingly, to pull more glitter than white from it. I also used Duncan Glossy Winter White 3D paint for the cake frosting that Mrs. Clause is holding. I drew the faces on each figure - I was worried that the small sizing would not cut the eyes properly from the svg file.  I chose the "Jolly" caption for the center of my card, and created the layered oval with the phrase "Have A Holiday" around the center. I used Optima ExtraBlack font for the lettering in my SCAL program.
The train and candy canes are from the files, and I embellished them with Stickles Diamond Glitter Glue. The train has some Candy Cane Stickles, as well. The tiny snowflakes are from an EK Success border puch I have. I was going to use the snowflake border on the card, but didn't like the look. so I used the scrap flakes around my card, instead! :) Each is touched with a tiny bit of Stickles on the points and in the middle.
Thanks for checking out the card. Hope you like it!
Happy Crafting!
