Santa is watching

Hi everyone! Happy first day of December! Hope you're having a good week! It's time for another fun challenge over at My Crafting Stories and our sponsor this time is Lacy Sunshine Stamps, so come on over and play! This is my last post with My Crafting Stories and I'd like to thank Merlina and the design team for having me along this year - I've thoroughly enjoyed myself! I'm thrilled to share my DT inspiration project for Challenge #12 - Christmas. I chose the absolutely adorable LSS image 'Rory- An Angel Gets Her Wings' digi for this Christmas card done in lots of red and green with just a touch of gold.

I paired this super cute image with some of my favorite Stampin' Up! Christmas papers and rounded quite a few of the corners for a softer appeal. I stamped a Santa sentiment, used several fun dies and added my signature big bow.

I decorated the inside panel with a scrap of the green dotted paper used on the front and another diamonds border die cut and then stamped the sentiment.

Happy to enter this card into the following challenges:

  • Cardstock/Paper: GKD Pure Luxury White, Fresh Asparagus and Cranberry Tart; Stampin' Up! Trim the Tree 6x6 DSP
  • Stamps: Paper Smooches Holiday Cheer stamp set
  • Ink: FS2, FS3, FS6, TN1, TB1, TB2, TB3, OR1, OR2, OR3, LY1, LY2, DG2, DG3, PP5, DR3, IG2, IG4, IG7
  • Dies/Punches: Taylored Expressions Notebook Border die, Memory Box Swirl Majestic Star die, Sizzix Borders die
  • Accessories: Green Prairie Bird Boutique wrinkled ribbon, Really Reasonable Ribbon Gold Metallic String, MISTI, Clear Wink of Stella, Doodlebug Design Boutique Button, Fiskars corner rounder, Golden Sunset Crystal Drops

I hope you've enjoyed this project and have found some inspiration to play in our challenge this month! Can't wait to see your Christmas project! Thanks so much for stopping by and we'll see you soon with another post!
