My Time to Craft Christmas no 11 Theme is Santa starting 4 June 2021

 Welcome to Becca's Heart for Creativity blog! My artsy-crafty heart decided to use the recent sister blog MTTC theme of 'inchies' and then build the card design from there. More design notes will be found in this posting but let's get to the pertinent details for this post.

What: My Time To Craft Christmas challenge blog

Why: my design team commitment inspiration card 

When: June 4, 2021 until June 17, 2021

How: create a Santa theme Christmas card for #11 and link to the MTTCC link listed below

Presenting: Dogs Love Santa, too! Merry Christmas card

More design notes: 

a. the inch-cut focal was created first; red and green paper, kraft paper, gold glitter alphas, the # sticker from Freckled Fawn, the gold Thickers berries are American Crafts, the gold sequins are Jillibean

b. the washi tape borders were added to the card base; I forget the maker but it was part of a multiple Christmas/winter theme pack; this particular one features Santa

c. white diamond cut glitter paper from Pen + Gear at Wal-Mart became snowballs for this Christmas card

d. Santa and the 2 dachshunds are from an old package of enamel type stickers

e. red and green faceted type gems were scattered around for more traditional color placement

f. small white glitter foam snowflake is another embellishment
