Jolly Holiday Wishes

Hello, again, friends!  It's Andrea back with you today.  In case you haven't finished your Christmas cards, here's another one to inspire you (hopefully). 

I'm taking my kiddos to visit Santa today, so a Santa-themed card was in order!  This Santa and deer from Reverse Confetti's Jolly Holiday are some of the cutest I've seen.  After stamping both with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink, I colored them with Copics and cut them out.  Naturally, I couldn't resist adding some highlights with a white gel pen.  I also brushed on a bit of clear Wink of Stella and gave Rudolph a shiny nose with Glossy Accents.

I just love the  whimsical nature of that patterned paper, don't you?  It's from Echo Park Paper's Deck the Halls paper pad.  The tree paper was die-cut with MFT's Stitched Basic Edges Die-namics.  The frame was created by layering two dies together.  For a similar look, you can use Lawn Fawn's Outside In Stitched Circle Stackables and Fancy Scalloped Circle Stacklables Lawn Cuts.  

After adhering all of my die-cuts to a white card, I popped up my colored images with foam tape.  Santa received two layers of foam tape, except for where he overlapped the reindeer.  I die-cut a banner with MFT's Stitched Sentiment Strips.  To achieve a shorter strip, I used partial die-cutting.  I stamped a sentiment from Jolly Holiday with Versamark ink and white heat-embossed it.

Thanks for stopping by!
