This month I started out with the stamp set, Santa Stationery, stamping in memento black and using clear embossing powder onto a Noted: scalloped A2 Die placing that over the Shape Shifters Oval 3 die cut.  Around the edges of this die I embossed with an embossing enamel, shabby green.

I used copic's to add color to Santa and glitter on the brim and ball of his hat. Sticklers gave the holly berries a nice shine.

Thank you for joining us this month for Keeping Christmas.  It's never too early to start!

Welcome to the new year, praying its a good one for all!
