Here is my take...;-)

Newton's Nook Designs Sun Soaked Christmas Set - Naki Rager

Oh my goodness!
Isn't he the cutest, most awesome Santa ever!?

Look at him just floating around, letting the wave take him wherever its taking him...
He does actually move like he is riding the wave, isn't it fun!?
He was colored with Zig Clean Color Brush Set and the Pearlescent Watercolor set then fussy cut. His glorious beard was colored with the white gel pen.

This awesome sentiment "Gone to the beach! Love, Santa" was heat embossed with white on vellum, fussy cut, and popped up with clear 3D tape. 
Some clear sequins were sprinkled all over for the finishing touch!

On my second card, I have this adorable "sandman" :-)
The sentiment is so stinkin' cute!

It was stamped with the Antique Linen Distressed Ink on watercolor paper then colored in with the Zig Clean cut Brush set and SU! reinkers. I stamped her hat again then paper pieced it to give some dimension.

I applied Versamark ink with the Versamark marker on the sand, then added some glittery gold emboss powder. Isn't it pretty!?
