Hello Stampin’ Friends ~
Today I want to share a card that I made with the beautiful “Father Christmas” stamp set. I knew when I saw this in the Holiday Catalog … I just had to have it. It’s nostalgic and I can just picture so many different uses with this set.
The card I’m sharing today is called a “Step Card” … it’s not that hard to make with some good instructions and a little cutting skill, you can create one in no time at all.
You’ll notice that I used that same paper as the card earlier this week, the “This Christmas” Specialty Designer paper. (This Designer Paper one of the pillow gifts our Retreat Attendee’s received) There are many beautiful patterns.
Santa was simply stamped in the center section with Basic Black Archival Stampin’ Pad (Permanent ink perfect for using with watercoloring techniques). I used my blender pen and Classic Ink pads to color my image. The Aqua Painters would also work well with this stamp set.
The greeting comes directly from the “Father Christmas” stamp set and is highlighted by cutting them out with the “Layering Circle Framelits”. My base colors for today’s card are Cherry Cobbler, Garden Green and Very Vanilla, and you can purchase the “This Christmas” Cardstock Pack to coordinate with your designer paper.
I finished the inside of the card by stamping the bottom of the “frame” that is included in the stamp set and then added the Warm Wishes sentiment from my go to stamp set … “Tin of Tags”.
When you place a $50 order with me, you will receive this card with the written instructions, my two club cards and a hand stamped Thank You card. With the END OF YEAR CLEARANCE SALE going on right now, it’s a great time to stock up on some items you need, or give a gift to a stampin’ friend.

Have a Jolly day ~
