Whiff of Joy DT

I'm sorry, you must be so sick of my Christmas cards by now (I know I am LOL). Today's is using another of my gorgeous DT kit from Katharina. Quiet Santa, I think he's my favourite one of all of the Santa and Lizzie range. I made this into a special card for my little boy, it is my first shaker card, I thought it would be fun for him and I must say he loves it and shows it off to everyone who comes bless him. The spotty/gingerbread house paper is MME and the Christmas tree one is BoBunny.
Santa is coloured with copics and I stamped a swirl from the Whiff of Joy Christmas swirls set around the image with fired brick distress ink. I filled the shaker with small white beads, white glitter, ivory flower soft and some glittered snowflakes for a nice snow shower!
I have written the sentiment with a silver gel pen onto the reverse of the Christmas tree paper, matted it onto the spotty paper and then onto two red flowers for a scalloped circle.
I fashioned myself a couple of large trees in the same style as the paper and added star charms to the top. I have drawn the swirl design on the green tree with a white gel pen.
On the inside I have used Baking Santa from Whiff of Joy and I have written the beginning of "twas the night before Christmas" and on the other side I have made a space to write a message.
The ribbon is from the Hobby House and again I have used a Whiff of Joy Christmas swirl.
Thanks for looking! x

Oh Jane, I don't think anyone can tire of looking at Christmas cards and especially one of such a high calibre. This is an outstanding creation and one which I am sure your son will treasure with pride. Words fail me, it is so gorgeous. You can just see the love and effort you've put into this one...
