Let's welcome Santa for his visit by getting our image 5085J - Santas Coming Digital Stamp Set. Size him on one half of your page to 4-1/2"x3-3/4". I also selected a couple of the sentiments and placed out of the area I wanted to use for just Santa.
Print on Hammermill® 100lb. White Coverstock.
Color as desired. I chose to use COPIC®.
A full list of colors are listed above for your use.
Cut a 5"x7" Core'dinations® Cherry Tomato rectangle for the card front base. Cut a
4-3/4"x6-3/4" DCWV® Christmas Plaid rectangle
to center and adhere to the card front base.
Cut a Core'dinations® Cherry Tomato rectangle using the largest Marianne® Double notched rectangle die. Run through the Big Shot ®.
Your colored image will need you to cut along the snow drifts from wall and around to the bottom as shown in order to slide the next-to-largest Marianne® Double notched rectangle die under. Run through the Big Shot®.
Arrange the two (2) of the Elizabeth® 1114 Fitted oval dies as shown around the sentiment "Ho-Ho-Ho! and run through the Big Shot®.
On the Core'dinations® Holly Leaf lay the two (2) dies and sentiment and trace around the outer most and inner most dies.
Fussy cut the Core'dinations® Holly Leaf and
Snip both end of the white and the green as shown.
Cut the Jingles sentiment using the smallest
Marianne® Double notched rectangle die. Lie the die on the Core'dinations® Holly Leaf and trace around the outer edge. Fussy cut the image. Center and adhere the Sentiment to the green.
Using 1/4" EZ-Tear tape and Maker's Holiday® 1/4" "HO HO Ribbon adhere about 2-1/2" above the bottom and wrap around the edges as shown.
Adhere the image and Marianne® Double notched rectangle about one inch above the bottom of the card front as shown. Adhere the Ho-Ho-Ho! banner about 1/2" from the top of the card front.
Adhere the Jingles sentiment about 1/2" from the bottom as shown.
Adhere the Card front to a 5"x7" cardbase.
To embellish the image I used the following;
* White Flocking on Santa's Fur.
* Liquid Pearls - Rouge on Wreath Berries.
* Nuvo Glitter Drops - White Blizzard on Snow.
* Nuvo Crystal Drops - Bright Gold on wreath bow, buckle and horn.
Using a flicking motion and Copic B000 and B00
to color the sky.
Using Gold Baker's Twine, wrap twice around the spine/fold and tie a bow as shown.
OPTIONAL: Using a scrap of each of the papers used to make our card and a name plaque, arrange and adhere to the backside of the card.
Wasn't that a fun journey to aid Santa along his Holiday visits of Christmas Cheer!
As a reminder I would like to invite you to visit me on my Etsy shop.
