Stampin' Up! Australia - Get Your Santa On - Merry Monday Christmas Challenge


It's always good to continue to make Christmas cards throughout the year so you have a bursting festive stash come November. :)

At Merry Monday, the challenge this week is to make a card featuring the big red guy himself, Santa!

Here's my card:

I used a retired stamp set called "Get Your Santa On" and some Designer Series Paper called Nordic Noel from the recent Holiday catalogue. Nordic Noel is STILL available on the clearance rack - YAY!

I used Cherry Cobbler Blendabilities and Smoky Slate Blendabilities for Santa's coat, boots and gloves. I put Wink of Stella on his beard and snowy trim. 

While I had the supplies out, I thought I would CASE a beautiful card by Diana Eichfeld - I changed up the DSP (I used Nordic Noel again) and the sketch a little bit, but I kept her adorable Gold Button and ribbon and her choice of stamp set and embossed background. Such a cute card!

I hope you like my card. If you have been inspired by it and would like to support my creative business, all the supplies may be found by clicking through the links below which will take you to my store
