It's Quirky Christmas...In July!

Hi guys, it's that Quirky Challenge time again. It's my turn to set the theme and at the time of typing I wasn't sure what to do... Something summery and hot? (ha ha ha) or...something freezing and wintry?? (Hmmm?) So after checking out some of the digi's our sponsors Stitchy Bear Digital Stamps were offering the Design Team to play with, it just had to be.....
Christmas In July!
So here's my first card. Yay, I've made two. Show you the other one later. I've used Busted from our sponsors. (I love that dog!! Grrrrr!)
I printed the Santa out two or three times so I could do a bit of decoupage. The top half of his body and head has been 3D-ed over the main image w
hich had been printed straight on to the blue 'snowy' paper (Scrapbook Wow). I coloured him with ProMarkers, using those thin nibs on the tiny fiddly bits.
The Christmas flowers I've had for years, along with the 'gel' sentiment, 'I love Santa' (It's the dog who loves Santa!)
The Christmas Tree and Holly papers are from a Christmas pack by Dovecraft, as is the sticky ribbon, which matches. I'm sure the red dotty paper comes from Hot Of The Press.
The epoxy brad come from a Forever Friends 'Cosy Christmas' set. The little bit of snow netting, is from my stash.
I finished off with a Memory Box die-cut in a gold, mock stitching, a Martha Steward border punch along the Christmas tree paper and a sprinkling of micro glitter on Santa's fluffy bits!
In side I've added a sentiment using a Woodware punch.
The Freebie Font is called Elastic Wrath and you can download it HERE
It only has letters, no extras like question marks, numbers or anything else. That's it for now. Pop over to Quirky Crafts and join in!
