Hi Everyone,

Today is exactly 1 month until Christmas. Did you all have a bit of a panic attack or are you cruising through your preparations because you are super organized?   I’m crazily creating cards and gift tags. This week we plan on decorating our home so that will be fun.

So in preparation for Santa, I’ve got a card featuring the fun, Signs of Santa bundle. Hope you are on Santa’s ‘nice’ list!

Basic

This card requires a few supplies. Stamp all over the Mint Macaron card base with the same coloured ink to create a background. I didn’t use the Stamparatus positioning tool. Instead I just randomly stamped all over.

The Santa is stamped in Black ink. When I stamped him, I was pleasantly surprised to find that his belt and shoes stamped in black so I didn’t have to colour them in.

So all you need to colour in is his suit and hat with the Dark Poppy Parade Stampin’ Blend and his face and hands in Ivory. Then die cut it. It’s very quick. If you don’t have a Big Shot, just fussy cut it.. 

The sentiments on the outside and inside are stamped in Black ink and then add some enamel shapes to complete this simple card.

Product List

Intermediate

Add a panel of the Designer Series Paper to add a bit more interest to step this card up. The Santa’s Workshop DSP has flocking on one side so it’s textured. Another feature of this DSP is that the dies coordinate with it so you can cut the images without having to fussy cut – a win for those of you who may not like fussy cutting. 

The sentiment is layered and added with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Advanced

I’ve added a little scene to this card by adding a mountain with the Into the Woods die. Emboss this with the Softy Falling embossing folding. Stamp the treesin Garden Green and die cut then add the embossing paste. Toothpicks work well for this fine work and then you don’t have to worry about washing up as you can just throw them away.
