Color Me Christmas Santa

I love this set, Color Me Christmas, the more and more I work with it.  At first I thought it was almost too childish…but with a new grandbaby, I'd figure I would still use it.  But, it really has turned more whimsical than childish in my mind!  Here's a card I did using the Santa for the first time.  I'm thinking I'll make my Santa tags with him this year…was quick and easy to color!  I also used the new photopolymer stamp set, Christmas Tagables for the greetings.

Here are the details.

  1. The base of the card is 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 of Cherry Cobbler cardstock, folded in half.
  2. I added a 4 x 5 1/4 layer of Whisper White on top.
  3. Next is a 2 1/4 x 5" strip of Season of Style Designer Paper, cut with a flag end.
  4. I stamped the Santa from Color Me Christmas with Black Stazon on Whisper White, then watercolored with Real Red, Cherry Cobbler, Blush Blossom, and Basic Black Stampin' Write Markers.  I cut with the Circle Framelits.
  5. I also cut Basic Black, Cherry Cobbler and Silver Glimmer Circles with the Circle Frameits.
  6. The Merry Christmas banner and 25 come from the Christmas Tagables set and I stamped them with Basic Black or Cherry Cobbler.  The 25 is punched with the 3/4" Circle and adhered to the Silver Glimmer Paper with Monoadhesive.

Isn't he fun?  Pretty quick and easy card to make, too!
