Dasher – MTSC48


Sorry I'm so late getting my post up today!  I got involved with doing some paperwork and the morning rushed by…and half the afternoon!

Mercy has a cute sketch challenge today and I thought I'd play along.  My card also fits my design team Late Night Stampers' My Favorite Holiday challenge.  Of course, my favorite holiday is Christmas, along with many other people!

I decided to use a 3×6 finished card size.  These fit in Stampin' Up!'s Open End Envelopes perfectly and go thru the postal system.  I've had Stampin' Up!'s Dasher stamp set for a while, but I think I've only used him a couple times.  He was calling out my name today.  This came together so quick and easy, I think I may make up some for my holiday cards this year!  I have my main ones 95% done, but I like to send out different ones to my husband's work people

I started with a base of Real Red card stock cut to 6×6 and then folded in half for the 3×6 size.  I stamped Dasher with Soft Suede Classic Ink on Whisper White card stock and layered it on Soft Suede card stock.  I put a strip of the holly print from Christmas Cocoa Designer Paper (yummy!)…great way to use up those scraps!  I stamped the trio of snowflakes from the Hostess Level 2 stamp set, Christmas Punch, with the BoHo Blossoms punch (did you know that matched???)  I layered it on a 1" circle punch of Soft Suede and placed a small Red Rhinestone Brad in the center.  It is popped up with dimensionals on the card.  Finally, I stamped Christmas Greetings in the Grateful Greetings Stamp Set with Soft suede ink.
