Jolly Old Saint Nick loves his snowflakes...

I made this card for a theme challenge of Snowflakes. I stamped them on the Crumb Cake card front, and embossed them on the Marina Mist layer. They take the backdrop to Jolly Old Saint Nick, though. I feel as though my time to use Christmas stamps is winding down (crazy, I know, since I've been stamping Christmas cards since August), and I wanted to use this Santa at least one more time before shelving him. For those of us who love visual aids, here's a close-up of the button with clear tinsel through it and the wavy banner sentiment:

And here's one more close-up of the card, showing the Vanilla Smooch Spritz on the snowflake-embossed Marina Mist layer with a rhinestone:

I used a sketch provided by Mary Jo at Technostamper.
