Glittering Glass Santa

Hello everyone! I'm popping in with another Christmas card.

After printing my digital image (Glittering Glass Santa, Power Poppy), I coloured it in using a mix of Altenew Artist markers and Copics. The sentiment is from the Happy Christmas set by Winnie & Walter. I blended a little Tumbled glass distress ink around the edges for a softer look and die cut my outer frames, including the skinny one, from hammered cardstock using a single SSS die (Frames). 
To finish off, I added a little sparkle to the baubles and tree and then added glossy accents.

I'm playing at:

CAS Christmas - Santa

HLS Christmas - Anything goes (option: CAS)

(and for 'skipping some letters' LOL)

ATSM - #319 CAS

I'm also linking up my colouring at:


  1. The little glass Santa ornament is lovely Marianne. Great choice of colours for the ornament and the boughs of the tree, they're all lovely and soft. The frame is a wonderful addition too. Love it!

  2. Love your sweet little blue Santa ornament. Thanks for joining us at CAS Christmas.

  3. Gorgeous Santa ornament with his blue coat. Beautifully CAS, thanks for joining us at CAS Christmas :)

  6. Love this little 'glass' ornament in blue! Reminds me of the delicate glass ornaments amongst my parents' tree decorations long ago.

  7. Such a lovely vintage ornament - a great way to use our Santa theme! Thanks so much for joining us at CAS Christmas.

  8. Lovely! How do you find the Copics vs the Altenew markers?? xx

  9. Dit geeft wel een heel realistisch beeld van een rond kerstpoppetje aan een tak. Knap gedaan, Mar. Xx Ineke☀️

  10. It has a vintage feel - can it still be called cute?
    Cheers, Barbara

  11. When I was a child on our choice hung such baubles. Your card is a small time travel to my childhood. I love your card
