Hello friends! Believe it or not, Christmas will soon be upon us! Has this year flown by for anyone else? I am so excited to share with you the latest card kit from My Favorite Things! The Stuffed Santa Card Kit is filled with so many cute images and die-namics! This set will be available at a bundle deal in limited quantities this coming Tuesday, August 24th, at 10AM EST.
I created a fun but simple card today using mainly items from this adorable kit. I first stamped my Santa image and his hands from the “Stuffed Santa” Stamp Set onto a small piece of Neenah Classic Crest Solar White 110lb Card Stock. I then colored my images with Copic Markers and used the coordinating “Stuffed Santa” Die-namics to cut them out. I set these pieces aside and went to work on a quick background. For my background I first cut a piece of Smooth White Card Stock to 4.25″ x 5.5″. I then diecut a piece of the Sno Cone Prestige Card Stock (which comes with the kit) with both the Wonky Stitched Rectangle STAX Die-namics along with the Square Peek-a-Boo Window Die-namics to create some interest to my background. I then stamped my sentiment onto the lower center portion of my blue card stock with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink.
Next, I lined up my top piece that I had cut the window out of and the bottom piece of my card to determine where I wanted to add a little bit of ink blending. I then lightly blended some Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide Ink onto my white base piece and splattered it with some diluted opaque white ink to resemble snow. Once dry, I then adhered my top panel to my base piece with 3D Foam Adhesive Tape for added dimension for my window. Lastly, I added my Santa (also with 3d foam tape) behind the window and glued his hands on top of my card panel to make it look like he was peeking out.
