Sketch Challenge Christmas Card

Here's another one of my crabby Christmas cards. Since almost all of my cards are different I was starting to get in a slump with coming up with new layouts, so I hit up the challenges over at Splitcoast Stampers. This is sketch challenge 197. I started with a piece of Whisper White and stamped my crab, the clam, and the shell. I added the Santa hat and presents using a mask. I colored them in with my Real Red, Old Olive, and Creamy Caramel markers. The clam was colored in with a few layers of Versamarker. I punched a piece of Real Red with my slit punch and slid my piece of Whisper White down. I then stamped my sentiment in Jet Black StazOn. I also added a silver brad. I then took a piece of Basic Black and punched it with the slit punch and slid my Real Red piece in. I punched a hole in it using my Crop-a-dile and threaded a piece of Real Red 1/4" grosgrain ribbon through it. And finally I adhered my 3 layers to an Old Olive card base.
