Detailed Santa, Greetings From Santa, Christmas Card

This is a set (stamps and die) that I regret getting, only because I didn't have enough time to play with it like I thought I would. I spent a lot of time with the "Hang Your Stocking" and "Cookie Cutter Christmas" sets, which I loved and had a great time with.

I think I bought this set to make our Christmas cards with this year.  Oh well. I am 99% positive it will be retired but I'm going to hang onto it and maybe use it next year.  "Hang on to it"!  LOL  That is a riot.  I hang on to them all!!!  Though in 2017 I will be going through my sets and selling them in my web store and come May I will be selling what is left in our neighborhood annual garage sale.

Okay, onto this fun card.  I went on Pinterest to see if I could find a quick card to make with the "Detailed Santa and Greetings from Santa" set.  I saw this card and it was like I was like I was stopped dead in my tracks.  I looked it over and saw that I had all of the "stuff" to make the card.  You can see the original card here.  It was a square card.  Not that I have anything against square cards, I just don't have envelopes and I don't know where my envelope board punch thing is!  Plus I'm not very good at using it. LOL

I did cut the red part of the hat out using the framelit. It fits inside the outline. The face, beard and pompom are glued to the back.  I did tape the face part but I felt I needed to glue the beard and pompom because I don't have luck with tape sticking to that glitter paper.

The "Ho Ho Ho!" is embossed in white.  I don't know what color the face was done on the original card but I used Pink Pirouette.  I forgot to add the dots for the eyes.  I will be adding them after I post this.

The "Merry Christmas" is from the "Greetings from Santa" set and I stamped it using Real Red ink. The base of the card is Basic Black.  I will add a piece of white card stock to the inside to stamp words on and sign my name.  It was a fun card to make and I'm glad I was able to change it from a square card to a regular size card.  I do like how it turned out.  

Thank you SO much for visiting today,

Merry Christmas Wanda! Just a quick comment on the envelope punch board. I keep mine in a pile of tools right next to me so it is very handy. Also just an encouragement to get to know it as it can do a lot of things other than envelopes. Mine must have lived with me at least 2 weeks before it made even one envelope. Enjoy!
