Santa with a couple of tattoos

I have finally started the Christmas cards for this year. I have had this image for years now, goodness knows where I bought it from but if you would like to make one for yourself then you could go over to Craft Rabbit and there you will find it in the Download Store under Christmas. Anyway, I opened a page in My Craft Studio professional and put together the wall and window with a window box with flowers. Then using the digital punch I cut away the section of wall behind the window. In one of the winter MCS discs I found the wallpaper which I slotted behind the window frame. I resized Santa and he went behind the frame but in front of the wallpaper. Then it was just a case of choosing the greeting and placing it on the front of the wall. It was then printed out onto super smooth paper using 'professional quality...3 stars'. I ran an A4 sheet of matching card through my printer with my 'made by' on the back and stuck the design onto the front with double sided tape. A quick spray of Crafters Companion Spray and Sparkle gave the whole thing a lovely glittery shine. Then it was just a case of putting another sheet of super smooth paper into the printer and printing off an insert which was fixed inside the card with a small amount of double sided tape.
I think this is an ideal alternative to cute Christmas cards..maybe for someone who themselves have a tatoo or three?
