Stamping 411 – Holiday Hoopla!

Time for the new Stamping 411 sketch…pretty easy this week!  I decided to use Stampin' Up!'s Holiday Hoopla…I have a bunch of these Santas stamped and cut out that I was going to use on another project, but I changed my mind.

And here is my card!



I started with a base of Baja Breeze cardstock and layered on Blushing Bride cardstock.  I ran the Whisper White thru the Big Shot with the Petals A Plenty Impressions Folder.  I added a strip of the Candy Cane Christmas Stripe pattern along the bottom and Real Red 1/8 Taffeta across the top of it, and secured in the back. 


I placed the Santa on the polka dot design from Candy Cane Christmas DSP and layered that on Blushing Bride and then Real Red cardstock.  He is popped up with Stampin' Dimensionals.  Finally, I stamped Do Not Open Until Christmas from Tags til Christmas stamp set with Black Stazon, punched it with the Wide Oval punch and layered it underneath the stripe DSP.  I added a couple Rhinestone Jewels to the side of the greeting and a larger one for the top of Santa's hat.


Fun card, I think!  I'm sure you'll be seeing more of my Santas again!  lol!  Make sure to check out what the rest of the Design Operators did over on Stamping 411!  I'm sure they will have some awesome ideas!
