Welcome Santa

Here is the third card I have made for my Christmas in July using A Quilted Christmas.
The card is 5 1/2"x4 1/4." I used a brick patterend cardstock from the Downtown Loft Stack by DCWV. I used the Christmas cartridge to cut out the window, then I cut a hole in the center of my card so you could see through my window. The window was cut at 3 1/2." I used a Spellbinders Shapeabilites die to cut and emboss the banner. I then chalked around the edges of the banner for more dimension. I stamped my sentiment to the banner. The stamp is from Scrappy Moms Stamps. I then added the banner to the front of the card with some pop-dots. The holly is part of a sticker that I peeled off because it was the perfect size. The stocking is a button and I added x-mas red Stickles to the center of it. The lights are also buttons. All the buttons are from Favorite Findings. Santa was cut from A Quilted Christmas at 3 1/2." I covered the light red layer of his robe in candy apple glitter by Martha Stewart. The white parts of his robe are covered in white flock and his mittens are covered in glossy accents. I also gave him a Peachy Keen face. I covered the inside of the card with some dark red patterned paper to look like wallpaper, but I added a white mat at the bottom to write on. I chalked around its edges as well so that it would stand out against the white card base. I then stamped the sentiment with another Scrappy Moms stamp.
I made this for the following challenges:
