'Dear Santa' Cabinet Card for Compendium of Curiosities

Had fun making this one!

The latest challenge from the Curiosity Crew is to use Cabinet Card Pockets - page 38 of Tim's book. Check out the link here... where there is some fabulous inspiration from the team.

This time round the sponsors are Inspiration Emporium.

For the last challenge I had made and didn't use my Umbrella Man Father Christmas so decided my Cabinet card was going to turn into my Dear Santa Christmas list... my wish list on the inside tag..

Lots of  different techniques with umbrella santa, my robin and present all crackled. My letters are industrial stickers altered with distress paints and stains.Lots of remnant rubs, chit chat stickers, stenciling and stamping.

 Not sure Santa will give me lots of Tim goodies for Christmas but I had fun making it!

I would also like to share at:
