Sunbathing Santa - Summer Christmas at UnstampaBelles

The UnstampaBelles December challenge is Summer Fun with the option of Christmas. We're sponsored by Bizzy Becs Paper Crafts, and you can link up your projects until the end of the month. Remember, you can't use ANY STAMPS (digi or otherwise)!

I couldn't resist using this great scene, complete with sentiment, from a Storyteller Card Sheet by Webster's Pages. I used a second sheet to fussy-cut Santa himself, adhering the piece with foam tape, and I also added diamond Stickles to his beard (both ideas from my Mom; she's smart cookie!)

These summer-themed brads lend some sunshiny fun to Santa's Southern Hemisphere Christmas!
I mounted the card on a double-sided DP from Cloud9Design, because I thought the words worked perfectly with this scene.

Challenge/Inspiration:
Card Mania: Christmas
Cardz 4 Guyz #49: The Big Guy (Santa)
CHCC December Challenge: Anything Christmas
Dream Valley Challenges: Christmas

Update: This was chosen as a Top 3 card for Cardz 4 Guyz #49! Thank you!

Thank you for visiting, and hope you'll join us at UnstampaBelles,

I should think lying on a beach is exactly what Santa's dreaming about doing right now! Thanks for joining us at Cardz 4 Guyz
