Sydney Santa Summer

Hello again,

Well I’m still making some more of my Christmas cards, as I haven’t made anywhere near enough, knowing that Mum had requested extra Aussie Christmas cards for our UK relatives I printed out four Aussie Santas from Make it Crafty on both plain paper and card, then paper pieced the singlet and shorts from my Christmas scrap bag before recreating the Sydney harbour I made on this card here using up more paper and card scraps to form the scene.

I used my spray inks to create the sky and water on separate pieces of card and watercolour paper the ocean turning a little greener than intended, but still looks ok.

These two cards were finished off with some 3D Crystalina Kindy glitz to the waves and the edge of the sand before I popped Santa up on foam to add dimension. Sentiment was added using clear embossing ink and some black embossing powder.

Here are the two Sydney Santa cards:-

What I used:-

White 5x7” card blank (12.6 x 17.8cm)
London Blue and Cut grass ink spray-Dylusions
White card

Derwent and Faber-Castell Pencils
Kindy Glitz 3D Crystalina

Stamps- Magazine Freebies
