Tis' The Season !!!

Hello Card Lovers,
      Well I am here with yet another Chrsitmas card to show you. I will be entering this card into two different challenges, Cardz TV (Happy Holiday) & Fantabulous Cricut Challenge (On The Job).
    For the Challenge going on over at Fantabolous cricut challenge, I wanted to think out side the box on his theme. This man featured on my card works year round, he doesn't ever get a break. He is to busy making his list an checking it twice, can you guess who I am talking about.... that's right Santa, I know him !!!
     I don't know why I have been hooked on Christmas cards. I actually stress out about Christmas, you could kinda say I am Santa's helper in a way. I manage my local UPS location and let me tell you December is NUTS . I have been at my job for 7 years, I absolutely love it, especially the people, but December is a little crazy at times.
     Well enough about me, on Dasher on Dancer, Oh wait I meant on with the card....
Materials Used
Cricut Imagine Cartridge (The Good Old Days)
Scrappy Moms Stamps (The Charmed Life)
Star Dust Stickles
Snowflake From Stash
Cloud9 Design Blue Rhinestone
White Pearls
3D Foam Squares
CuttleBug Snowflake Embossing Folder
Tim Holtz (Tumbled Glass) Distress Ink
ATG Adhesive
Fiskars Corner Punch
     My card base measures at 4.75x4.75. My Santa and background are cut at 4". I cut the strip of red paper at 1.5". All of my papers were also printed using the cartridge listed above. I Cut my Santa out Twice that way I could cut all his layers out separate so I could pop them up.
     I used stickles on all the white on my card, except the two little snowflakes on the wings of the airplane. I knew I wanted to emboss the background to give it a little extra touch, I then just went around the edges with my distress ink to make in stand out better.
     Well I hope you all enjoyed this Christmas card. Feel free to ask any question you may have. Thanks for stopping by and Happy Scrappin"
