Christmas card: iMac Santa

iMac Santa wmWhat:

A quick card for my other half to photograph and use as a digital card for his colleagues in the US.


I had a quick hunt for a decent quality image of an iMac, sized it appropriately, printed it out and fussy cut it. I masked the edges and blended some Distress inks to create a sunset and then stuck a die-cut hillside over it.

A strip of glitter tape on the card base formed a ground for the iMac, which I popped up on some foam tape.

Both the Santa and the die-cut snowflakes were extras that I made earlier in the season — that speeded things up a lot! The only additional thing I had to create was the speech bubble sentiment.
