Christmas Gift Card

Hi - its time for another challenge over at This week the challenge is to make your own patterned paper. I am so enjoying being part of their Design team. The prize this week is 2 templates of your choice from AR by Adela.
I decided to go for a silhouette stamped background paper.

To make this I dug out one of the oldest set of stamps I have - "Santa's Coming To Town" made by See-D's. These should get more use as they stamped really well.
I chose a template called Gift and Card Combo and found it very straight forward to work with.
 Again I used another of the stamps from the See-D's and what a jolly Santa he is. I coloured him with copics and then used glamour dust for the hat and his beard. The sentiment is again from the same set - so glad I found it again. This is the front of the gift/ card finished with some red gems.

This is the finished design and I'm very pleased with it - there will definitely be more made with gifts for Christmas in them.
I would like to enter this in the following challenges -
