Susie's Sassy Challenge no3 DT card - Buttons and Bows

Another fortnight has passed already and Susie's next Sassy Challenge has been announced. The theme this time is Buttons and bows so I decided to make another Christmas card to add to my small pile of cards.
I used a digital image from Jane's Doodles Designs, this Santa is just so cute I couldn't resist making a backing paper for my card by printing out multiple images onto a piece of card and then colouring them in with my Promarkers. The images print so clearly and it is a real delight to colour them in. I also added glossy accents to his boots and glitter to the fur on his cute little santa suit.
I sewed the backing paper I had made on to some red card and wrapped a red satin ribbon round the assembled pieces before sticking to the card blank. I stamped the Papermania 'ho ho ho' sentiment onto a tag cut from a Sizzix shape and mounted it to the left of the card with a foam pad.
The Santa was then printed once and coloured it with Promarkers and more glossy accents and glitter was added to his boots and suit. I cut the image with Nesties and mounted onto a Nesties scalloped circle before sewing around with a ziz zag stitch. The topped was mounted on the card front and I added a large bow to which I had sewed a heart button. I finished off the card with 2 more heart shaped buttons that I had threaded with narrow red ribbon.
I love how bright and Christmassy this card turned out. Make sure you come and join us for the Challenge, this time there is a Guest Design Team place available for the winner. I loved looking through all your entries last time, they were all fab so make sure you join in again!
I hope you are having a good week.
