Here is Santa Max, again...!

I cannot leave him! LOL!!!

I made this card with a hand sketch called "Santa Max" of EdithDesigns© (that is me!). There is cardstock with glitter, ribbons and opaque dew drops. I love the combination of colors, burgundy, dark turquoise and the beautiful designer paper.

I like to decorate both sides of the inside of my cards, to give them a fine finish, strong and heavy. On the right side there is a blank space to write your own good wishes and on the left side I sew a pocket, decorated with the delicate touch of the beautiful EK Success paper punch (I love it!). A tag is included to be used for a sentiment, but the pocket also handle a gift card. I am sure it will make the recipient very happy!

There are several layers of cardstock, both on the outside and the inside, which I sew with silk burgundy thread on my sewing machine.

Card supplies:
Image and sentiment from EdithDesigns©, Bazzill cardstock, miscellaneous printer paper, Caran D'Ache watercolors, acrylic metallic paints, Tulip dimensional puffy paint, EK Success Paper Shapers Scallop Dotted, burgundy and golden ribbons, dew drops, burgundy silk thread, scissors, sewing machine.

Such a cute card Edith. Max looks great as Santa - so nicely drawn. Your card is finished off just beautifully. I love the tag pocket. So nice to see you playing along with the OCC this week. Hope to see you back again with us next week!
