Pink and Main Warm Holiday for Freshly Made Sketches 412

I saw this funny stamp sentiment from's Christmas Fun Card Sentiment set and I knew I just had to make a Santa card with it. I used the layout from Freshly Made Sketches 412:
I started with Bristol Smooth card stock and a piece of Post-It-Tape to create the beach scene. Ink blended Distress Ink Wild Honey for the sand and Distress Oxide Ink Broken China for the sky. I used the corner of a baby wipe to lightly lift some linear lines in the sand for some detail.
Santa and the Sun are from Pink and Main's Warm Holiday stamp and die set. I colored with Kuretake Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers with some White Gel Pen polka dots added on the shorts. Nuvo Aqua Flow Shimmer brush pen added some nice sparkle to the sun and sunglasses.
The sentiment was stamp on Neenah white card stock and die cut with the small Waffle Flower's Dotted Tags. It has a nice dotted edge. has Neenah precut and scored A2 card bases. They are great for creating card bases is my least favorite thing to do!
The inside is a simple sentiment from's Holly Jolly Sentiment set (Yes, I used it again!). All in all a simple but fun card for the Holidays!
