This week I am featuring Creative Expressions Ho Ho Ho mini expressions die and I couldn't not use Simon Says Stamps adorable little Santa with it from Simon's Christmas Cheer stamp set. I received this lovely stamp set in Simon's December Card Kit which has sold out but you can buy this Christmas Cheer stamp set and the others elements of the kit separately in store

The background was kept simple and I created it by stamping some of the other stamps from the Christmas Cheer stamp set onto kraft card stock using Simon's White pigment ink and I added some small gems to the center of my snowflakes.

I coloured little Santa with my copics and then fussy cut and foam mounted him onto my background. I die cut my Ho Ho Ho sentiment twice using silver glitter card stock and layered them together to add some dimension.

The copic colours I've used are -
R89, R59, R39 / C3, C1, C00 / W4, W2, W0 / N9, N7, N6
