Season's Greetings will soon be heard on a regular basis. Christmas will be coming soon, Shortly after Thanksgiving, I will start addressing and mailing my Christmas cards. I have started early this year, so hopefully I will not have any last minute panics to make more cards.
In the Holiday Catalog, Close To My Heart has several Christmas stamp sets. The 2 stamps I used come from the set Santa Claus, on page 5 in the Holiday catalog. Here is the card I made.
On a 5 1/4" x 4" piece of white cardstock, I made my own background paper, using ruby ink and stamping with the saying, "Santa Claus is coming to Town", all over, then took a small snowflake stamp from the same set and stamped with Outdoor Denim in the white spaces.
I stamped my Santa Claus twice; once on 1 3/4" x 2 1/2" piece of white cardstock with outdoor denim, then on a scrap piece of Ruby cardstock with Ruby ink. I cut the hat off the Ruby Santa, and glued the hat onto the white cardstock Santa. I mounted this on a 2" x 2 3/4" ruby cardstock, then mounted it again on a 2 1/4" x 3" piece of Outdoor Denim cardstock.
I finally stamped the Ho! Ho! Ho! stamp in Outdoor Denim on three pieces of 1" x 1" square white paper in outdoor denim ink, which I then mounted on a 1 1/4" square of Outdoor Denim cardstock.
After I put the card together, I mounted the entire card on a piece of 5 1/2" x 4 1/4" Outdoor Denim cardstock.
This was a lot of fun. I haven't made my own background paper in a while. I think this is one card that will be sent to some of those people on my Christmas card list. I hope you enjoyed the card.
