Shimmering Santa

One of the new stamp sets in the Holiday Guide is Santa Claus (C1567).  If you love all things Santa like me, then this adorable stamp is a must have!   I used the sketch from this week's Paper Players challenge to create this card.   The masking technique helps to create a Ruby Santa's cap after stamping Santa in Slate ink. The strip across the front of the card is the zip strip from the Sparkle & Shine Paper pack.
