Vintage Santa – 30 Day Christmas Cardmaking Challenge

Today’s sketch for the #30DayChristmasCardmakingChallenge had me in a bit of a quandary. I wasn’t quite sure what 3 elements I was going to use for the entire design to be cohesive. In keeping with using retired sets for Nostalgic November I chose the Signs of Santa stamp set.

The Santa was coloured in Bubble Bath to create the vintage look I wanted on this card. You could use our St. Nicholas bundle #163859 to create a similar vintage Santa.

I added layers of stamping to create a collage style background. Our retired Layering Circles dies were used for the centre. These can be substituted with the Deckled Circle dies #162286.

I ran the Nested Essentials die twice around the sentiment to create a smaller label to fit the sentiment well and to work in with the sketch. All current products used have been listed at the bottom of this post. If you live in Australia you can shop online or contact me to place an order.

Letter to Santa Day 25 – 30 Day Christmas Cardmaking Challenge

In the absence of anything related to Letters to Santa in my current stash, I’ve had to pull out my retired Signs of Santa stamp set to create this card for the #30DayChristmasCardMakingChallenge. Do you use your retired sets much? I have quite a stash although I do sell quite a bit. There are certain stamp sets that I keep – for occasions such as this!

You could substitute this Santa with the Santa’s Delivery Bundle. The dies from this bundle are reduced during our Last Chance sale.

I fussy cut around the Santa image then I die cut 3 layers of the Santa from Basic Black Cardstock, layering all 3 and the stamped image on top. I like this shadow effect and it also makes the image more stable.

I coloured in the Santa with Sweet Sorbet Stampin’ Blends and his belt with a store bought Gold gel pen. The background candy cane stripe Designer Series Paper gives this an extra fun touch. This paper is on sale and I’ve ordered an extra pack because I love it so much. Have you stocked up on your favourites?
