When Santa got stuck in the Chimney


Using unscriptedsketches #157 and christmascardchallenges challenge with punches.  I'm not one for putting quotations on my cards, so I nearly bypassed Unscripted Sketches this week - and then I remembered this quotation from the "Just Believe" stamp set - perfect for Santa!!!



I used the Santa Suit from the "Tags till Christmas" set and added a tiny brad to make his button.  His fur edging is made using the Word Window Punch.  For the chimney, I embossed a piece of Early Espresso with the Stripes folder and then rotated it 90 degrees to make sqaures.  For the chimney top, I rounded the corners of a plain piece of Early Espresso and then scored a couple of lines on it.

Thanks for popping by! 

SU card: Whisper White, Early Espresso, Black
SU ink:  Real Red, Basic Black
SU stamp: Just Believe, Tags Till Xmas
