Christmas for Kids Big and Small

Hi All
I'm filling in for Siobhan again this week over at Woodware where Dorothy has challenged us to make something Christmas - for Kids Large or Small.
I picked one of Francoise stamps FRS252 Huge Santa for my card.
It works brilliantly with Paper Piecing, and I don't care how big, or small a kid you are, who doesn't want to see Santa at Christmas?
The background has been made using my trusty Creative Palette, some dye based inks and bubble wrap.
The papers used on 'Santa' are from my stash and I will be able to finish several other similar cards using the leftover letters. That really is the beauty of Paper Piecing, you get more than one card from your stamped images.
The Faux Candi is made from small punched circles of matching card stock.
I added faux stitching and some 'Puffy Stuff' to Santa's hat along with some glitter. Even I have to have a bit of glitter at Christmas time lol.
Please pop along to the Woodware Blog and see what the rest of the team have come up with to inspire you.
Happy Crafting
