TECC41 - Jolly Old St. Nick

Time for another great Cupcake Friday sketch from Taylor.  For this week I chose not to use a Cupcake Image (It's not a requirement but if you have them, "Why not use them?") since I am in need of Christmas cards I went with a Christmas theme for my card.
Stamps Used:  Jolly Old Elf (Retired SU) I love this set and haven't used it much so I thought I'd dust it off and give it some love. Frosty (for the sentiment) also Retired SU.
Card Stock:  Ridinghood Red, Old Olive, Very Vanilla 
Designer Paper: Scenic Route
Other: Punch - Martha Stewart
Circle Nestablities Dies (Spellbinders)
Cuttlebug Swirl Embossing Folder
Old Olive Brads
Ridinghood Red Taffeta Ribbon
Iridescent Ice EP
If you need details on how this card was made feel free to e-mail me.  I'm in a bit of a rush this morning so I'm not including the details of how I made this card.


  1. Ida! This card is wonderful! Love how you played with this sketch! I like how you added sparkles to the swirls! The stamp you used is gorgeous! Love the 3-D effect!
    Hope everything is fine with you and your family!

  2. Love your version of this sketch! great job!

  3. Love your card! How did you get your swirls so sparkly? That is a great technique!

  4. Sooo cute! Love your Christmas card, Ida! Thanks for playing the challenge, I always look forward to seeing your creations!

  5. Wow, this is so pretty. I love what you did with the sketch. The colors match so well and I love the stamp you chose to use. It goes perfectly with the circle. It's like he's lounging in the bubble. LOL. Hope you're having a nice day off with your other half! Hugs, Jenn
