With the end of October here, it’s starting to feel a lot like Christmas – so breaking out the new stamp sets, Santa’s List and A Banner Christmas, were the logical choices for me. Isn’t Santa sweet? I love this stamp of Santa! He conjures up lots of wonderful memories of my childhood.
I am entering this card to this week’s Paper Player’s Challenge. It was a fun sketch and I know that you would love to use it as well. I started this card using my Color Coach, and the suggestion of Baked Brown Sugar, Garden Green and Cherry Cobbler was a real winner for this card. I used the new Stylish Stripes Textured Impressions Embossing Folder from the Holiday Mini catalog, then started the layering process. My favorite element on this card? It is the CUTE banners! I will surely be using that stamp again and again. This card is a fast and easy card to put together. The little bit of fussy cutting I did on the banners and the Merry stamp were straight edges so it wasn’t time consuming at all. I really like the vintage feel of the card that the colors play into as well.
