Ho Ho Ho


I hope you all enjoy a day full of many blessing and happy memories.

This is a simple card I made for my son.  He loved it!

So here's what I did to create my card.
  • I began with a piece of white cardstock and cut out the Christmas Token die and set it aside.  
  • I glued the plaid paper behind the cut away circle.  I've had that paper for years so happy to be able to use it.
  • Next, I stamped out the Santa and fussy cut it out.  I really don't like to colour, so I decided I would paper piece him together.  I stamped the Santa again onto some patterned paper, fussy cut it out and glued it onto the Santa.  I did have to colour his face, boots and hands with Copic markers.
  • I glued the die cut panel onto a piece of red cardstock, then glued the Token back into place over that.  
  • I pop dotted Santa over the token and added a shiny white pom pom onto his hat.  
  • I glued it all onto a heavy white card base.

Thanks so much for coming by and taking a look.
I always feel so blessed to receive your wonderful, kind messages and I so appreciate you.

Karen, I think Santa is as handsome as I've ever seen - loving the plaid, and his sweet little shiny pom!
Merry Christmas!

This is a fun card for your son and I love the plaid which always works brilliantly for a masculine card, and the paper pieced snowman looks great over the die cut circle. x

I liked your paper-piecing idea for the Santa. Visiting from FB Stamping Life.
