Just Beclause!

I am loving this new Santa from the Holiday Mini. The writing on his suit and calendar on his bag are such cute touches.

I am making Christmas cards like crazy for the fair, and so I made this one last night. It took hardly any time to create.

  • This is an A2 card base of Real Red.
  • A slightly smaller layer of a Merry Moments DSP print came next.
  • The adorable Santa, from Just Beclause, was inked in Basic Black and stamped onto Whisper White. I used a blender pen and Real Red, Close to Cocoa, and Always Artichoke to fill him in.
  • He was snipped out and popped up on dimensionals.
  • The background for the Santa was made up of a 3" square Snowfall Window Sheet and Real Red, with a mat of Old Olive. TIP: I used glue dots to attach the window sheet only underneath the Santa.
  • The sentiment was inked in Basic Black and stamped on Whisper White. Elastic Gold Cord (new!) was wrapped around it before I popped it up using dimensionals.
  • Two Jumbo Chocolate Chip brads finished it off!
