Pink and Main Warm Holiday for Fusion Challenge

Welcome to my blog post for the Fusion Challenge Thankful:
I decided to use just the sketch with a stamp set I've had in my stash from Pink and Main called Warm Holiday. It has some really cute images and I loved the Santa with suntan lotion. I have some in-laws that have moved to Florida this year from Buffalo, New York and I think this card has their name on it!
The images were stamped with Scrapbook.com's Hybrid Black Ink on Bristol Smooth card stock and colored in with my Kuretake Zig Real Color markers. Again, a lunchtime project at work, using my portable water cup and a Silver Black Velvet #6 brush. The Zigs have such vibrant colors! I always enjoy working with them. They have a perfect flesh color (No. 071 Flesh Colour) and with the addition of a little pink (No.026 Light Pink), you have a nice sunburned Santa! I used the coordinating dies to cut out the images.
The background is a panel of Neenah Solar White die cut with the largest Kat Scrappiness Cross-Stitched Rectangle dies. Next, with MFT's Stencil: Peace Love Joy and using Scrapbook.com's new ink blending tool (domed foam toppers), I ink-blended with Distress Ink Pumice Stone. A nice warm subtle background color for this stencil.

The 3 circles were cut with Neenah Solar White using Taylored Epxression's Peek-A-Boo Circles die. Easy, fun way to make perfectly positioned windows in a card. 

The panels were adhered with Tombow Liquid Adhesive onto an A2 size of MFT Lemon Drop heavyweight cardstock. The sentiment was stamped using my MISTI and Scrapbook.com's Premium Dye Black ink.

I did pop up the cups of hot chocolate and Santa with Scrapbook.com's 3D Square and Round adhesives.

The inside is a subtle stamping of the palm tree with Scrapbook.com's Camel ink and the "Merry Christmas" is from Scrapbook.com's Holly Jolly Sentiments.
