AAA Cards Challenge #104: Christmas, with video

Our theme this fortnight is: Christmas, and our sponsor is Uniko, you could win an in stock stamp set if you play along with us.

For my card I used an Uniko stampset, but it's no longer available in this guise, but the Santa appears on a background stamp as well and that's a new release.

I used the Crafter's Companion neenah paper and stamped the images with Simon Says Stamp intense black ink, then cut out the images using the Scan N Cut.

I colored the images with Spectrum Noir markers.

I thought the sentiments in the set were a bit small for my card, so I pulled out a Christmas Washi tape, and one with gold confetti.
So I also have a grounding spot for my colored images. It's like a hill or road if you prefer.

I adhered the tree with tape runner and I made the Santa wobble with a homemade wobbler spring.
then mounted him in front of the tree. I decorated the tree with some really small glittery blue enamel dots as if they were baubles/ornaments on the tree.

For more information and to play along with the AAA Cards Challenge, see this

I'm also entering it into the Less isMore Challenge Let it shine as I thought the glod laminated washi and glittery enamel dots would be on theme.

And the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge tear it up  As I tore the washi tape.
