Surfs Up!

I just love this wee Santa in our new mini (we have 2 Santa stamp sets & it seems like you like one or the other - not both). I've used the same colour scheme as SU! have in the mini catalogue: Bravo Burgundy, Garden Green & More Mustard & it's certainly not a colour combo I could have dreamed up in a million years but it works brilliantly. I've clear embossed the lovely palm tree in the corner of the card but not sure how well it's photographing.




Stamp set: Season's Surfin'
Ink: Basic Brown, Versamark, Bravo Burgundy, More Mustard, Garden Green, Blush Blossom, Going Gray, Brocade Blue, Creamy Caramel, Riding Hood Red
Paper: Bravo Burgundy, Garden Green, More Mustard & Confetti White
Other: Blender pen, clear embossing powder, dimensionals

Inside the card:

Go Santa, go!

Very cool. I do see the palm tree and what a clever clever clever touch.

Yes I have changed my mind about this stamp set - this card looks great and this Santa is certainly more suited to our part of the world than the "snow" santa.
