Sketch Challenge Christmas Card IV

And here is my last Christmas card using a sketch challenge from SCS. Again, I opted for the clam instead of the crab. I stamped him on Whisper White in Jet Black StazOn with a Santa hat using a mask and then stamped some shells on either side, also using a mask. I then colored them in using my Creamy Caramel and Real Red markers. I then layered my clam on a piece of Basic Black. I added a Creamy Caramel layer to the bottom of my Always Artichoke card and a Real Red layer to the upper part of my card. Before adhering the Real Red cardstock I added a piece of Always Artichoke 1/4" grosgrain ribbon (using the ribbon saving method). But before adhering the ribbon I stamped my sentiment in Always Artichoke on Whisper White and punched it out with my Large Oval Punch. I punched two holes in either side with my Crop-a-dile and threaded the ribbon through it. And to finish the card I adhered my Santa clam layers to it.

And I think that's the end of the Christmas card marathon!
