Dilly Beans Santa Baby

The days are just flying by, aren't they? You ready? I'm not even close. But the Dilly Beans Designers have been hard at work with our new Santa Baby Challenge. Megan has so many adorable Santas and helpers at the Dilly Beans Shop I had a hard time choosing but finally decided on #311 Santa and added #176 Mittens (printed twice, once flipped and fussy cut individually) so he could hold #293 Three Presents. Obviously, someone has been very very GOOD! (That would be ME, LOL I can dream, can't I?) I colored with Copics to match the DP from the Jingle Bells stack by Recollections. The whole thing looks a bit busy, but hey, it's a busy time of year. Santa's beard and moustache were glittered and embossed with Swiss Dots in my Cuttlebug not only for some bling and texture, but because I also planned on entering it in The Cuttlebug Spot Santa Baby challenge this week, as well.

Various part of the pressies are popped and I've added some glittered chipboard by K&Co to the bows and pom pom to Santa's hat. "Jolly Santa" are acrylic from Cloud9. Now go have a look at the fab inspiration from my teamies at the Dilly Beans Challenge Blog and don't forget, you can still grab the adorable freebie Snowman Family and join in that challenge through the 19th, as well. And don't forget the fab sale at the Dilly Beans Shop, now through Dec. 26th. Buy 3 single digis and get one free. WooHoo!


  1. Love, love, LOVE the look of this card. It's kind of cartoonish and whimsy. Awesome job, Donna! =)

  2. Donna you are just sooooo creative with images. This is just fabulous I love how you used the mittens to hold the pressies, very clever-no make that brilliant, xxx

  3. Wowser! What an adorable and happy card. I love all the added details, and I don't think it is busy at all, you know Santa is always busy. You really put a lot into this card my friend, and I am so glad you entered it in the Cuttlebug Spot. Good luck to you, chat later.

    Hugz, xx

  8. Firstly, I LOVE,LOVE, LOVE this card! Nothing could be too busy as long as it melds and isn't overwhelming. I'm a big fan of incorporating several elements along with bright colors. That textured beard is total awesomeness!

  9. What a jolly good job, Donna! Great work on the paper piecing! I think this Santa is heading my way with all those presents. I've been nothing but good all year. Right! I just printed out my first DB image but not sure I can pass it off as a Santa.
