Can you believe that we are only 5 days away from Christmas!? It's exciting, exhilarating, energizing and yet e-x-h-a-u-s-t-i-n-g all at the same time! Today I am on the Joy Clair Designs blog sharing a fun holiday card using the skating Santa image from the Love Santa digital stamp set.
The base of this A2 sized card was made from 80 lb. Neenah Solar White Smooth cardstock. I also cut a 5 1/4" x 4" piece of the same white cardstock for the first mat. I stamped the leaves from the Fall Greetings stamp set in Memento Tuxedo Black ink horizontally along the top and bottom of the white cardstock mat. I colored the leaves with red and green Copic markers to give them more of a festive holiday feel than a fall feel. I placed a 5 1/4" x 1/4" strip of black cardstock as a frame to ground the "NOEL" letters onto. I die cut the letters, "N, E and L" from red glitter cardstock. I adhered the letters to the card using 3M foam adhesive for added dimension. I printed out the skating Santa from the Love Santa digital stamp set and colored him using Copic markers. I fussy cut the Santa out and used this image in lieu of the letter "O" in "NOEL." Lastly, I added a coat of clear Wink of Stella to the Santa image for added sparkle.
