Happy 2022 - Welcome, I hope you are enjoying the New Year so far. It's been a "snowy" one for our area (much to my dismay) but so far I haven't been depressed about it.
So today I'm sharing a couple of cards that I just did not have the time to post before Christmas arrived.
Both cards use the same stamp set: Gifts of Joy (2005 - SU)
Card No. 1 - This card has a "retro" feel to it.
I stamped the Santa image with Real Red ink on Basic White cs and fussy cut him out. The Card base is Real Red layered with Crumbcake. The designer paper is a very old DCWV holiday stack.
I used Mint Macaron card stock and a Martha Stewart punch.
The sentiment is from Tim Holtz Bold Tidings stamp set. I stamped it with Memento Tuxedo ink and used Circle Dies to cut it out. I also added some tiny light green gems and mounted the Santa image with foam tape.
Card No. 2 - For this card I went with more of a sparkly/festive look.
Card Base was, Mossy Meadow layered with Cherry Cobble and a piece of designer paper that I have no clue where it came from. I also added a small strip of pear pizzazz. The Santa was stamped with Cherry Cobbler ink and fussy cut. The sentiment was stamped with Mossy Meadow ink and mounted with circle dies. I added some green sequins to the card as well and some clear sparkly glitter to Santa. (hard to see in the photo but it was very sparkly).
I hope you have enjoyed both of these fun holiday cards.
this santa is adorable. I like both but think the 2nd is my favReplyDelete
Fun fun! From serene to bold -- both are fun, Ida! Happy New Year! And yes, we've had the snow too -- now with the winds, we have Lake Watson on our corner :oPReplyDelete
Both of these are just so fun! Though I seldom give Santa cards, I don't know why cause they bring a smile to my face every time I see one.ReplyDelete
Your first card is mine and I love it! This Santa is so cute and cheery and I love him stamped in red and left uncolored. Perfection!ReplyDelete
