This jolly Santa takes me back to when I was a kid. I love the bold real red color contrasting with the pool party background. If you buy anything out of the holiday catalog, it should be this Home for Christmas DSP pack. The whole pack of paper includes art by Stampin’ UP! that is just fun and versatile. The images are spaced far enough apart to allow for punching them out.
The first step to making this card is to cut a base of pool party cardstock to 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″ scored at 4 1/4″. Emboss the front of the card using the Boughs and Berries Embossing Folder. Next cut a frame out of the gold foil sheet using the Lots of Labels framelits die on your big shot. Cut the cottage picture DSP from the Home for Christmas DSP using the larger die and adhere it to the cardbase. Attach the gold frame on top to the cottages with dimensionals.
Punch out a Santa image with the Note Tag Punch and attach him to the bottom right of the frame. Add a snowflake element to the tag with a glue dot.
Next stamp the Jolly sentiment from the Oh, What Fun stamp set in real red on whisper white cardstock. Punch out the sentiment with the Washi Label Punch. Attach this to the top left of the gold frame. Tie a bow with the real red striped ribbon and adhere to the card with a glue dot.
To finish the inside of the card, cut a piece to whisper white cardstock to 4″ x 5 1/4″. Stamp the Happy Christmas sentiment in real red near the top and glue a strip of the cottage paper to the bottom. Adhere the layers to the inside of the card.
