Santa on Ice!

So I spent a fun afternoon creating this card. My image is called "Ice Skating Santa" and is part of a digi kit from The Paper Shelter. I chose to use the background provided in the digi kit as well as the Santa image.
 It can be found Here .

I've included 3 images for this card, my main one then a couple of close ups in an attempt to capture the sparkle of the gems and glitter.

I decided to matt my image onto green paper from dovecraft to co-ordinate with Santa's scarf. I then added green gems to the corners, silver gems to my sentiment and a silver star gem to the top of the tree. I used clear glitter glue and ultra fine white glitter to add to the trees and snow to give a snowy effect, clear glitter glue to Santa's scarf and the snowflakes and silver glitter glue to the bauble, Santa's skates and where he's skated. I stamped my "Its a wonderful time of year" sentiment and finished by adding a bow to my bauble.
