Holiday Blogstravaganza - Vada Schutz



Today's creation for the TJ Holiday Blogtravaganza is from Designer Vada Schutz. She used the Floating Acetate Technique from the Feb 2006 issue of the Technique Junkie Newsletter. The Santa stamp is from Stampers Anonymous, Snowflakes BG is Hero Arts.

Vada used White StazOn on the front and stamped Santa on printed Glossy w/ Black StazOn. Then she colored him in using marker watercoloring and chalks.


Since these cards are so hard to show off (because you can see through them : ), Vada took a picture against a quilt and then scanned it (below) also.

Thanks for playing along Vada! Gorgeous card!
