Christmas card #8

Hello everyone, one week left for Christmas and I think we are slightly overwhelmed by now!
But I am determined to keep my calm!
I would like to welcome my newest followers, Eleonora Fonseca from Scrap world da LeoBianca van Tilburg from Biancas scrapcardsKirsten Persson Kristensen , and Gaby Dierx of Dol fijnecreaties. Please visit all four ladies, they are so wonderful and very inspiring!!  Thank you so much ladies for joining me!

Today's card was inspired by Sharon from Ewe 2 can craft, She was the Guest Designer for Through the Craftroom Door for their December challenge "anything goes", please visit her and have a look at her very inspiring and beautiful cards! Thank you Sharon for the inspiration.

So I have a stamp with this cute little Norwegian Santa called "Jule Nissen" and I stamped him 4 times on the white card stock and I stamped one more time on watercolor paper and used Distress Inks to colour him and then I popped him up with foam squares.
I also coloured the gifts on the other 3 Santas, then I stamped the Norwegian sentiment that translates as "Merry Christmas" 4 times as well on top of each Santa and heat embossed them with gold embossing powder.
I used Glossy accent on each heart on the presents and put Stickles glitter on the border of each Santa hat.
I finished my card by gluing some gold stars and used my gold Signo pen to make some dots following the path of the stars.
So there is my card for today. 
I really enjoyed making it and I hope you like it!
