Santa's Belt

     I have been playing with soda pop tops for the last 3 days. I think I have used 9 of them so far. It all started with some gift tags for under the tree. You can see these tags here.



     When I started playing with this card sketch from Sketch N Scrap, my first thought was -- where is the pop top (Santa Belt) going to be. Once I had that figured out I located this Santa from an old set I had. Sometimes I wish I had dated my stamp sets, so I would know how old they really are. 
     One thing I know for certain is that this paper from Carta Bella is two years old. I have 6 or 7 sheets left from a Christmas tag swap. I chose it here because the red matched the red I wanted to use on Santa's suit. 

Sketch #136 by Lisa Hidy

     I used my Copic markers to color this Santa. I set the picture on large, allowing you to analyze my coloring out of the lines. You can see I took this pic before I added the bling to the tree. 


     Here is the inside of the card. I had several partial sheets of patterned paper, so finding scraps was no problem.
