today i have a christmas card for ya – the first of many!  this one combines the sketch from SCS this week and the color challenge for Sweet Dreamers:


i used 2 different cuttlebug techniques for the 2 background panels.  the red one is cuttlebug smoosh – the ink goes on the RECESSED areas.  to do this just ink your embossing folder with a brayer (does not hurt the folder) and then emboss as usual.  the green panel is the opposite – i cuttlebugged first and then inked the RAISED areas with a foam ink blending tool.

i colored the images (CTMH) with copics, added stickles and used polar white flower soft for the hair and beard.  works great!  i added a few peppermint skittles to finish it off!
