Merry Australian Christmas!

I had a custom order for a Christmas Card-in-a-box, and the instructions were that it had to be Australian and that it had to have a warm sun. Hmmmm, didn't know where to start with this one, but once I worked out the Australian part it all started coming together nicely.
I put the punch art kangaroo at the front as it looks like he is pulling Santas sleigh. I used Santa's List Stamp set, stamped in Sahara Sand and then water coloured his skin in Blushing Bride and his suit in Cherry Cobbler.  The sun was made from a scallop circle punch, punch once, then you turn it so it punches again in the middle of the scallop, giving that sun burst look.  There are tiny hand cut presents from Best of Birthdays, in the sleigh with Santa. Some leaves from the bird punch, similar to gum leaves and the card was complete.  This was made for a friend's daughter who will be overseas for Christmas this year and she loved it, so I am happy.
