Now onto my card, I am featuring Dear Santa Stamp Set with the coordinating dies (grab this set while it's still available, it is on sale!) and the Christmas Time Paper Pad.

Here is how I created my card:
  • Card is an A2 top folding card measuring 4 1/4 x 5 1/2.
  • Cut the top layers using the Christmas Time Paper Pad.  Love how the paper coordinates with the stamp set.
  • Die cut the stitched circle using NND Circle Frames Die Set with vellum.
  • Stamped and die cut the Santa from the Dear Santa Stamp Set and die cut it with the Dear Santa Die Set.
  • Added the circle and the elements to the front of the card and then stamped and embossed the sentiment from the Dear Santa Stamp Set.
  • For finishing touches added some added some fine glitter to the presents and trim on the Santa.

  5. I really like the setup of the card w/ the rule of thirds... the santas, the neighborhood and the tree patterned paper at the bottom. It's a busy card but not overwhelming thanks to the way you structured it. Great job!!
