It’s that time of Month again for the Designer Challenge over at Elizabeth Craft Designs.  And over at the ECD Blog the Design Team is making a start on Christmas cards using the new Joset Designs Character dies that were released this month.

EK Gorman, Elizabeth Craft Designs a I pulled out two of the new character dies to create this fun holiday card.

EK Gorman, Elizabeth Craft Designs dStep One:  Die Cut all the Santa Claus die pieces out of 85lb White Soft Finish Cardstock.

EK Gorman, Elizabeth Craft Designs eStep Two:  Color all the die cut bits with your alcohol markers.  I used my copics.  The reds were colored with R24, R27, R36 and R89.  The Black was W5, W6, and W7.  The Gold was colored with Y21, Y26, Y28.  The skin tone was colored with E50, BV00, E21.  And the White was colored with colorless Blender, B60, and B63.
