Jolly Old St. Nick: JUGS #49 Challenge and Waffle Paper

At one of my club meetings last week, one of the students mentioned that this Santa image from the Jolly Old St. Nick Stamp Set looks just like the Coca Cola Santa (aka Coke Santa).  I hadn’t really given it much thought, but she is right.. he does look like that winking jolly image from the Coca Cola ads a couple years ago, doesn’t he!

Today’s card share is another waffle paper background… I’ve used the gold Waffle Paper and had a lot of fun with it!  The waffle paper is found in the Holiday Mini Catalog and is sold two rolls per package:  one each silver/gold or black/brown.  With 5 yards on each roll, it goes a very long way!  This was one more of the backgrounds we made last month in the Where Women Create meeting/gathering last month… what a great group of creative friends!

Here’s another card made with that jolly winking Santa image… this one was made especially for this week’s Just Us Girls Sketch Challenge JUGS #49.   Have you seen the Jolly Holiday Designer Series Paper?  It’s really full of fresh and fun patterns of polka dots, interlinking circles, and stripes.  With coordinating cardstock in Cherry Cobbler, Old Olive and Very Vanilla, it’s sure to be a big hit with card makers and scrapbook makers too!

After coloring Santa’s hat with Cherry Cobbler Ink and an Aqua Painter, I added some highlights to his cheeks and lips with a Blushing Bride marker before using dazzling diamonds and a two way glue pen to add some additional sparkle to the fur trim on his hat, and just the edges of his beard as well.  I thought about adding a greeting but thought it would distract from the cover image and presentation… the message will have to go on the inside of this card!
