Ho Ho Ho

Yes, I know it is only September 2nd, but I am so dang excited about the new 2015 Holiday Catalogue I just had to share this fun Christmas card with you today. It uses the new Home for Christmas DSP...I love the vintage Holiday images on this gorgeous paper!

Christmas card featuring the Home for Christmas DSP pack with sentiment from Oh, What Fun.
Aren't those Santa images cute?  They are even cuter fussy-cut and used as a focal image, but I wanted to find a way to incorporate them that didn't involve fussy-cutting.  I have some customers who find it very difficult and I wanted to design a project that showcased the images without requiring scissors.  The answer? My 1-3/8" Circle Punch!  Those little Santas fit perfectly in that size circle.  I placed them on a collage of various-sized card stock circles in Real Red, Mossy Meadow and Very Vanilla.

The sentiment is from the Oh, What Fun stamp set, which is designed to work with the Oh, What Fun project kit, but is also a wonderful selection of sentiment stamps for just about any Christmas project. Here I stamped Ho Ho Ho in Crumb Cake ink.  I built my collage on a piece of Kraft card stock that I embossed using the Lucky Stars TIEF and matted on a piece of Real Red card stock. The card base is Very Vanilla.  To add a little extra bling and some interest to my collage I added some gold Glimmer paper stars, a wooden Snowflake Element and a bit of gold Baker's Twine.

On the inside I stamped a sentiment from the Cozy Christmas stamp set using Real Red ink. I love the vintage look of the images in that set!

  1. So cute! The DSP is nostalgic for me, growing up in the 60's, when this was all the rage. : )
