An ATC with a Message for Santa!

Susie here today to share an ATC with a message for Santa!  I am totally crushing on the sweet little girl image in Susan K. Weckesser's Grandma's Needlepoint stamp set from Unity.  She is the perfect size for an ATC (Artist Trading Card) and I think she looks like she has something she wants to say!
Here are the "how-to" details:
I die cut and embossed an ATC using the new Tim Holtz Kraft-Core Shattered Collection from core'dination and a Spellbinders die.  I used an emery board to rough up the edges and reveal the kraft core.

I stamped the little girl on white cardstock with black Archival Ink then cut and embossed it before adding color to the image. "dear Santa" was also stamped in Archival Ink.

The Christmas Tree die cut and the phrase stickers are from Fancy Pants Designs and I "popped" them up with some foam dots to add a little dimension.  The final step was to add a few self-adhesive red rhinestones from Want2Scrap on top of the holly berries.

Here's another look at the finished ATC - I sure hope Santa is listening!!

Thanks for stopping by - I hope you find some time to play today!
