Wonderful Wednesday Give Away - Artistic Outpost

Hmmmm Can't you just smell pine and feel the snowflakes when you see this card? St. Nick is coming, my dear friends -- and maybe he is coming to your mailbox! Today's TJ Holiday Blogstravaganza continues with the giveaway this week.

today's Wonderful Wednesday giveaway is for the card above, made with the snowy woods stamps from Artistic Outpost. My version of St. Nick was colored using the Color Dusting Tutorial from the August 2003 issue of the Technique Junkie Newsletter (HEY! Techniques NEVER go out of style!). He is layered over a panel using the Faux Flocking Technique from the June 2007 issue of the newsletter.

Here is the full stamp sheet I am giving away this week:
