Hi everyone, I was a little late getting my Christmas cards made this year. Fortunately, they are now all out with Australia Post so I think it is time to share my design. Hopefully, I won’t spoil the surprise for too many people. One of the styles of cardmaking I love is that of making scene cards. I haven’t done them for a while but when I saw the Signs of Santa Stamp Set I knew this would be my choice! There are so many different permutations and combinations I could have gone with but in the end, I decided Santa, Mrs Cluas and the signpost would be my choice. Those little elves are way too cute though so I will have to use them on another project.
I wanted to create a simple card where the images just popped. The white of the background seemed a little too stark for me. I used snow mound die from the Farmhouse Framelits die to create a template which I then used to sponge Pacific Point ink to create a soft background. When we sponge we generally try and aim for it to be without any streaks. I didn’t worry too much if it happened – it kind of added to the look of the card.
Here’s the card…
Aren’t they the cutest images? I love them! Both the of the sets I used to create this card have now been discontinued and will only be available while stocks last or until January 2 2019. I’m sorry to see them go. I particularly love the fence and the slope in the Farmhouse Framelits Die set.
Thanks so much for stopping by! Hope you have a great day!
Listed below are the supplies used to create the above project. If the stamp set comes in different types (such as clear mount and wood mount) or as a bundle, I link to all.
