Here Comes Santa Claus

Good Morning.  Happy Friday!!  I am so happy that Friday is finally here, I'm sure you are, too.  Before I show you the card I made, the Stamp Doctor herself just celebrated a birthday.  If you'd like to see the cards that RN Lizzie and the EMTs made to celebrate her special day, just visit Lizzie's blog and do the little hop.  You will surely be inspired along the way.

And now for today's card.  I always aspire to look at "old" things in a "new" way.  So I set off to try something fun with some Spellbinders dies in a different way.

I made this using Spellbinders dies:  Scalloped Circles, Oval dies, Blossoms Tags & Accents dies.  TSD stamps are from Santa Circles set.  Paper is by Teresa Collins.

How to make this card:

  • 1.  Cut 2 scalloped circles from white card stock.  Emboss these with any texture plate (M-Bossibilities have lots of choices) or use white puff paint.  Ink the smaller circle with a touch of gray so that it stands out a little.  Adhere to larger circle.
  • 2.  Cut out oval from flesh colored card stock and ink it just a little with dark pink ink for cheeks.
  • 3.  Punch out little white circles and little black circles and little flesh colored circle for eyes and nose.  I did punch out 1/4" circle from red for his lower lip.  I also used an old flower punch to make the mustache.  Adhere as I did.
  • 4.  Now cut a 2 x 4 inch rectangle from red card stock and cut in half from bottom left point to top right point.  Score the short straight edge about 1/2 - 3/4" inch and fold over.  Adhere as I did.
  • 5.  Using one of the dies from the Blossoms Tags & Accents dies, cut white card stock for the puff ball accent on his hat.  Add buttons to create cuff on hat.
  • 6.  Add your sentiments to the base of the card.

Have a great Friday!
