Here Comes Santa Paws!

Newton is so adorable dressed as Santa on a rooftop on this adorable card by Zsofia

For this fun and festive card she features the image of Newton in his Santa costume, reading his Christmas list from our Santa Paws Newton Stamp Set. She also stamped and extra mouse to perch on his head and the bag full of gifts from the same stamp set. She colored all the images in holiday colors, adding details with  glossy accents and glitter. The images were cut out using the coordinating Santa Paws Newton Die Set

Here is a close up so you can the amazing details in the coloring:

For the card base, she created a rooftop scene. First she ink blended a blue sky with distress inks, adding lots of splatters for snow. Next, she cut layers of scalloped edges using the border die from our Sky Borders Die Set from red paper. She inked the edges for a distressed look and then layered them all together to create a red rooftop. She added the kitty, mice and bag of gifts onto the rooftop.

The finishing touch is the sentiment "Here comes Santa Paws" from the Santa Paws Newton Stamp Set. She stamped it onto a thought bubble from our Speech Bubbles Die Set and added it to the sky.
