Believe in the Magic

Well hello there, and welcome to day 2 of MFT Teaser Time!  My card today uses the new (and gorgeous) stamp set, Inspired by Christmas.  I just love this Santa image and was bound and determined to use it!  I went scrappy and opted not to color him.  He is stamped on Kraft card stock with Stampin' Up Chocolate Craft ink.  As always, I stitched around the circle one stitch at a time, with the wheel on the side of my sewing machine.  That takes dedication, folks.  LOL  



The patterned paper is a limited edition print from My Mind's Eye - Signature Christmas.  I used some wide SU ribbon and a fun button from MME.  I cut the new Crown Border Die-namics using some patterned paper and placed a medium-sized copper brad in each hole to add some pizazz.  



Isn't Santa SO gorgeous? 



Here is the super cute Crown Border Die-namics.  I love it.  Works well for Christmas, too.
