Classic Santa Card

Hello again.
Here with another Holiday card. I will be taking part in the Christmas/ Holiday card challenge over at the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge blog. 

I have been making very cutesy like cards so here today with a little more 'classy' Christmas card for you. 
Simple but elegant. I just adore this Santa stamp soo very much.
I picked this stamp up a few years ago from a local stamp store of mine.
I used a brown card base. I stamped the Merry Christmas script background stamp (also from my local stamp store) onto Kraft card stock. I wrapped some baby blue ribbon and twine around it before I adhered it onto the card base.
For Santa, I stamped him with Onyx Black Versafine ink. This stamp has a lot of details so Versafine is the best ink for this as it brings out the finest details in stamped images.
I then colored his face in using a pinky colored marker from Tombow. You do not want to use copic markers with this as the versafine ink will bleed. Added some red to his glasses just using a simple fine tip marker or pen.
I then covered the image with double sided tape ( Its actually sheets of double sided tacky film, not like strips of tape, I unfortunately used my last little bit and threw out the packaging so I don't know what its called, Sorry!) I then covered it in clear glitter. I used transparrent Micro Fine Glitter by Glitter Ritz. Sadly this does not pick up well on the picture but it person its beautifully glittery!
