Welcome Digi Divas and Happy Holidays! Today I am excited to share with you this Christmas Card Creation with a touch of nostalgia. I made this Dear Santa Card using Santa's List #3186J Digi Stamp set. I suppose all of us have wondered as children which list we were on- Santa's Nice List or the Naughty List! As for me, I am still working on my Christmas Card List. This card is the latest...
This is a 5"x7" card
Hammermill® 100lb. White Coverstock
Color as desired (I use Copic® Markers)
DaisyD's® Premium Pad
Recollections® Red cardstock
Paper Studio® Textured Cream Sheet Music
Black Solid core cardstock
Tonic® Dear Santa Die
Nesting® Notched Rectangle Dies
Distress Ink®- Vintage Photo
Liquid Pearls® Rouge
Size the Santa sack to 4-1/2"x4-1/2", print on Hammermill® 100lb. White Coverstock. Color as desired, I used Copic® Markers. If using Copic® you may want to color only the bag first and cover with a damp burlap swatch for about 10 seconds. Let Dry! Then color the balance.
Cut the Paper Studio® Textured Cream Sheet Music to 5"x7" and apply Distress® Ink - Vintage Photo to the edges. Adhere to the cardbase front with fold on left. Using the largest Nesting® Notched Rectangle Die position over the Santa's bag cutting off the left side. Run through the Big Shot®. Apply Distress® Ink - Vintage Photo® to the edges. Repeat using the Antique Santa paper of the DaisyD's® Premium Pad and next to largest Nesting® Notched Rectangle Die. Cut rectangles 1/8" larger than each using the Recollections® Red cardstock . Fussy cut the corners to match leaving 1/8" as shown. Pop the green swirl out of the DaisyD's® Premium Pad and cut in half. Adhere the antique Santa in the upper right corner, adhere one half the green swirl to the left and one half to the bottom right as shown. Adhere the Santa Bag in the lower left as shown. Using the black cardstock and Dear Santa Die, run through the Big Shot®. Adhere to the card front about 1/2" from the top and right side. Punch out the December25 (or your choice) out and adhere about 1/2" from the bottom and right side. Randomly adhere a few Iridescent® Sequins. Apply Liquid Pearls® Rouge to the holly berries on the bag. Let Dry! OPTIONAL: Apply a few scrap rectangles in a design on the backside with a name badge.
