Santa's Delivery, Santa Express, Christmas Card, Stampin' Up! Fall Catalog 2022

This card was a "must make" when I saw it. I saved it for a later date because I had a couple other ones I wanted to make first. I think it was all the red and then the white circle that drew my attention to this card. You can see the original card here. I'm trying my hardest to use up that package of Designer Series Paper (DSP) because we all know that when the catalog ends the paper retires. I have so much retired paper and then the colors change and I don't have the colors to go with the retired papers so I'm trying really hard to use it up. Wish me luck because it will be a first for me!

The base of my card is a folded half-sheet of Basic White card stock. I cut a 4-1/8" x 5-3/8" piece of Poppy Parade card stock and taped it to the front of the card. Then I cut the DSP from the "Santa Express" 12" x 12" package at 3-3/4" x 5" and taped that to the Poppy Parade layer.

I die cut a circle from the "Layering Circles" die set using Basic White card stock and the largest circle in the set. 

I die cut the train from the "Santa Express" DSP and set it on the circle using Dimensionals. Then I taped that to the front of the card about 3/8" from the left, top and right edges of the DSP.

The words are from the "Santa's Delivery" set and were stamped using Garden Green ink on a 3-3/4" x 3/4" piece of Mint Macaron card stock. I was going to change it to Granny Apple Green but it stuck out like a sore thumb, even though there was Granny Apple Green on the bottom part of the train. But the Mint Macaron can be found on the mittens so I stuck with that color. I taped the strip in place on the front of the card about 1/2" from the bottom edge of the DSP.  

A white bow was tied and glued in place and the card was done.

This was a very fun, quick and easy card to make. Plus it's so bright and colorful. It screams Christmas!!

Thank you SO much for taking your time to stop in and see today's Christmas card,

That suite of the Santa's Express is so darn cute! It's one I didn't get because I usually make a different style of holiday card but I do so love the ones you have made!

Such a great card! I DO wish you luck in using up the paper. :-) I think I have only ever finished one stack of patterned papers - possibly two. And I have lots.
