Happy Sunday Friends! Katie here. I know that some of you are big Halloween fans and honestly, Thanksgiving doesn’t get a lot of glory, but Christmas is really my jam and I am ready to dive head first into the season!
…and, it seems as though Santa feels the same! See, I wasn’t joking….
Today my card features the new Stuck Santa Die Set. This set is so fun and silly, I love it! Here is how I made mine.
First, I die cut the different elements in different colors. Red CS for Santa’s Suit, a bit of black and gold too, white for everything else. For the parts that have some embossed edges (like the chimney), I ran them through again with a squishy pad to add the lines. For the chimney, I used my Blending Buddy and Fired Brick and Mahogany Distress Oxide for color. I used a white paint pen to add some grout and then sprayed it with white distress spray. For the highlights on the snow, I used a Copic BG10 to add a little color. I popped that out on the chimney using foam tape. Next, I die cut the white portions in white felt so it would be fuzzy. I put Santa all together and used Copics R39 & 37 to add some shading. Once it was all together I mounted it on my DP paper, which is a sheet of snow flurry filled paper from the Holiday Trimmings Slimline Paper pack, cut to 4 X 5.25. I mounted that on white. Finally, I stamped the sentiment form the on Holiday Tweets Stamp Set on white and cut it using the banner from the Mini Slimline Card and Envelope Die set.
Pretty fun right?! I think so and hope that you agree. I plan to have another fun card using this stamp set in the very near future, so stay tuned…. 😉
Thanks for visiting today. Head to the shop to pick up your own Stuck Santa set if you feel as excited about Christmas as I do!
