To start santa's journey down the chimney you will need my new 5085J Santa's Coming Digital Stamp Set. Size the main image to

Print on Hammermill® 100lb. White Coverstock.
Color your image as desired. I chose to use
A full list of the Copic® Colors is listed above.
Using an X-acto® Knife, cut around the "G" and from
the wall around the snow drifts to the opposite wall and up three blocks as shown.
Slide the Alinacutle® SnowFlake Stitched Oval®
Die under the "G" and Snowdrifts. Run through the
Use the die as a mask and Copic® B41 to indicate a skyline with a flicking motion from the edge inward as shown.
Using a Gold Glitter pen, trace around the
"Greetings" to form a halo.
Cut (2) rectangles 2-1/2"x7" of DCWV® Sparkling Snow Cardstock for the front of the cardbase.
Using Copic® B41 color along the fold of the 7"x5" easel cardbase as shown.
Using EZ-Tear Tape®, adhere the (2) rectangles
2-1/2"x7" of DCWV® Sparkling Snow Cardstock
to the front of the cardbase as shown.
Apply Nuvo® Crystal Drops - White Blizzard
to the Snowflakes around the main image and on the snowdrifts. LET DRY.
Using Bearly Art® Precision Glue adhere white Flocking to the Santa's fur on his suit.
Using Neenah® Black Solid Core Cardstock and the
smaller Kokorosa® Tree Scape Circle cut (3) tree
lines and a 3/4"x7" strip. Adhere a tree line on the left and the right of the lower panel of the cardfront and the strip along the bottom as shown. Save the third for later.
Edge the card front edges using VersaMagic®- Aegean Blue.
Adhere the Santa Image to the lower flap of the cardbase front. Be careful not to glue any part of the image to the upper portion of the card flap.
Punched a 1" circle of pale yellow cardstock. Apply yellow Glitter Glue to the 1" circle. Let Dry! Adhere the circle in the upper left hand corner as shown.
Randomly apply a few drops of Nuvo® Crystal Drops - White Blizzard around Santa as shown.
Center the InloveArt® Holly Frame over the sentiment and run through the Big Shot®.
Adhere the sentiment with Foam Tape to the interior of the cardbase. Apply Nuvo® Crystal Drops - White Blizzard around on the holly/snow of the sentiment as shown.
I like to apply an OPTIONAL arrangement to the
backside of the card. I typically use leftover cardstock from the card. I used a rectangle of
DCWV® Sparkling Snow Cardstock, an extra Kokorosa® Tree Scape Circle cut-out and a name plaque. Arrange and adhere as shown.
