All Time Favourite Christmas Card Swap

Again this year Marie Kirkwood is hosting a swap featuring Christmas stamps.  I signed up for 2 spots - I have to make 2 sets of 12 card fronts.

My most favourite christmas stamp is not from Stampin' Up! so I couldn't use it for this swap.   That stamp is a wonderful Santa face.  In the new Holidy Mini catalogue there is a set - Jolly Old Saint Nick - with a very nice Santa face so I decided to use that for my first set of 12 cards.  I used a card featured in the mini for my inspiration.

Stamps - Jolly Old Saint Nick
Card Stock - Baja Breeze; Real Red; Shimmery White; Candy Cane Christmas DSP
Ink - Black StazOn; Real Red, Sahara Sand and Blush Blossom markers
Other - Real Red 5/8 Satin Ribbon

Very nice! I like the stamped background and the way you used the ribbon.
