CCMC325 Get Your Santa On

Yeah!  It’s time for another Thursday Challenge over on Create with Connie and Mary.  This time it is a fun sketch challenge!



And here is my card using the fun set, Get Your Santa On!  I decided to flip my sketch so it lined up with my stamped image better.


CCMC325 Get Your Santa On

And…the details:

  • The base is 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 Whisper White, folded in half.
  • On top is a 4 x 5 1/4 layer of Garden Green cardstock.
  • A Real Red Circle was cut with the Circle Framelits and placed in the background.
  • Across the top of the circle is a 1 1/2 x 5 1/4 piece of Nordic Noel Designer Paper (I love that stripe!)
  • I cut a 2 x 3 3/4 piece of Whisper White and stamped the Santa suit from Get Your Santa On with Memento Black Ink.  I cut it with the Scallop Tag Topper Punch.  The suit was colored with the Cherry Cobbler & Smoky Slate Blendabilities Markers.
  • Across the top of the tag, I stamped JOY with Crushed Curry Ink.
  • I tied a piece of Real Red Woven Ribbon thru the tag hole, then tied it with Basic Black Bakers twine in a bow.  I added the tag to the front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  • I stamped Get Your Santa On greeting with Tuxedo Black Ink on a 1/2″ strip of Whisper White and cut a flag end.  I added the Santa Hat, colored with Cherry Cobbler Blendabilities above the greeting with a Stampin’ Dimensional.
  • Finally, a trio of Rhinestones was placed in the circle for a little extra bling.

CUTE if I must say so myself!!!  That set is just darling!

I agree that this is a CUTE card! Love the little santa hat above the sentiment. It adds a nice little touch. And nice shading on the santa suit! Blendabilities are the best!
