Merry Monday #207 It's in the Bag!

This is a second card for me today. I am also joining in with Merry Monday's Christmas Card challenge.



I missed last week as I didn't have a nativity scene. I also didn't have a stamp or image with a Bag or Sack so I had to make one in Serif. I think it squeaks in??!!




Foliage is from the MFT Leaf Greenery Die Set and Ivy from a Lil' Inker Christmas Die Set.
The bow is from W Plus 9's 'Woodland Wreath' set.
I have drawn the Santa sack in Serif, printed and cut it out then coloured it with Watercolour pencils. I added just a touch of water to slightly blend the colours.

That's it from me.

It's very cold here in NZ, but very hot in the U.S. Whatever your weather, happy stamping.
