Jingle Belles Here Comes Santa Claus challenge

The new challenge @ Jingle Belles is to use a Santa image on your card.  I had some vintage Santa transparencies and glitter backing transparencies that I've had in my stash for a couple of years and decided to use one of those on my card.

I dry embossed the red cardstock background and added a few paint splatters of white paint.  I also added a piece of acetate of the Santa image, and inked and embossed the edges of the acetate with white to get a snowy look.  It's hard to photograph this without getting glare from the acetate and glitter; it looks much more sparkly in real life.

Your glittery Santa is fabulous ... the embossing adds great texture too ... so glad you helped us celebrate Jolly Ol' St. Nick at Jingle Belles.
