Jingle Bells and Ho, Ho, Ho to you! One of my favorite “silly” Christmas songs is I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus, my all time favorite rendition is by John Mellencamp.
According to the song, a child is peeking in on Mommy and believing that she was really kissing St. Nick. So I made my card with a curtain pulled back to reveal the kiss. 🙂
The background of brick was achieved by running my cardstock through my eBosser using my Tim Holtz Alterations brick embossing folder, and then I distressed it lightly with CTMH Slate ink, just to make the bricks pop a little. I layered that on top of red and green dotted patterned paper and that was added on top of green Bazzill cardstock for the base. I added a black rectangle with the top corners rounded to form the opening to the fireplace. I colored the images with Copic and ShinHan alcohol markers and popped the image up with foam tape. I added Glossy Accents to the berries in the mistletoe and “hung” it with some silver thread. The final step was to pull back the curtains with brads and attach the curtains with Scor Tape.
