December elements

It’s the first Friday of a new month so we have our regular “elemental” challenge at Daring Cardmakers — just choose at least three elements from the inspiration picture to kickstart your project. We’ll be back to our single word prompts next week.

From the very festive moodboard, I chose a Santa hat, pine branches and silver framing (inspired by the mirror). I did intend to add ho! ho! ho! as a sentiment but in the end preferred it with a small white on black one (computer generated). I used Pan Pastel to make the frame a fairly matte silver and then pressed down quite hard with a gel pen to make a groove for a slightly more ornate look.

This Santa hat is a really good size and I like the suggestion of the man himself rather than a full image!

Just love this CAS card with the Santa hat atop the pine embossing, Joanne - so eye-catching!!

Good CAS card. I think maybe the hat is as iconic or more than the man himself? I like how it pops on the white field.
