PPA #276 – Merry Santas

Playing along today with the Pals Paper Arts challenge and getting another one in under the wire.  Here is the sketch for this week:


When I first looked at this sketch, I thought it would be a cinch.  Maybe I was over-thinking it, but when it came time to make a card, I was stumped!  That’s why this card is just going to make it in the challenge on time.  It was stuck in my head too long!

WARNING:  No stamps were inked in the making of this card!

I simply turned the sketch and made the card a non-standard size to accommodate the three Santas.  The card is 4 1/4″ x 7″.  I used the heavy stock Whisper White cardstock for the base and a piece of DSP from the Brights Designer Series Stack in Old Olive.

I really dug into my “tool” box for this card.  I used the Christmas Greetings Thinlits Dies for the Merry sentiment and cut it out with the Red Foil paper.  Then used the 1 3/4″ Scallop Punch along with the 1 3/8″ circle punch to frame the little Santas, which were cut from the super cute Home for Christmas Designer Series Paper.  Each of the circles were popped with dimensionals.

Not sure why this sketch gave me so much trouble, as this card came together super fast.

Thanks for stopping by and wishing you a wonderful day.
