Christmas Craft Creations July Challenge: Christmas Characters, with video

Welcome back to the Christmas Craft Creations, July edition: Christmas Characters.

I chose a surfing Santa, as if he's on holiday at the mo, getting a nice tan too.
I will send it to my friends on the Southern Hempishere as it's Summer there when it's Christmas.

For my card I used a digi by Craftin Desert Divas, it's no longer available, but you might have something similar.

The sentiment is from Simon Says Stamp Tiny Words Christmas.

I made the background twice, didn't like the smaller window, so I used a stencil I made with an oval die, then inkblended Distress Oxides (Tumbled Glass and Mermaid Lagoon) through a Simon Says Stamp Waves stencil and for the clours a Marianne Design Stencil.

I mounted Santa with foamtape and placed him on top.
