Signs of Santa

Only four may days until Christmas. I know Santa is busy getting all those presents ready for delivery.

When I first got the Holiday Catalog I wasn’t planning on getting the Signs of Santa stamp set. It’s cute but you know, can’t get everything! But after I started seeing projects using it I quickly changed my mind. And it became my favorite and most used set from the catalog.

This was one of the cards from my Christmas card class this year. He is just so stinkin’ cute. The embossing folder is Swirls & Curls. I used Stampin’ Blends for coloring Santa and the North Pole. On a sad note, I lost the smallest snowflake die after the first use. The hazards of stamping in a messy space.

This gift card holder was from my regular stamp classes.Again, Santa was colored using Stampin’ Blends. Notice the outline with the light Smoky Slate Blend. It really does add to the image giving it a look of some dimension.

When you open the card the inside piece pulls up the gift card.

While I don’t always do it I love have a coordinating envelope to go with a card. This is my favorite way to decorate the envelope and so easy. Just cut a piece of 6″ x 2-1/2″ piece of DSP and attach it to the back flap of the envelope. Then simply turn the flap over and trim to fit. One of my goals for next year is to have no naked envelopes!

Only a few more days to place an order this month. There are some great buys on the Clearance Rack and the Holiday Retiring List is out with some products on sale. You can order through my online store here and I will give you a coupon to use in January for 20% of the amount of your order before shipping and tax. That coupon will come in handy to reach the $50 amount needed for FREE Sale-a-bration product.

Thanks for stopping by. I’m off today to see the new Grinch movie.

  1. Beth, my thinking followed yours on first seeing this set and then changing my mind. While I didn’t get the set, I did order the M&M pack and made lots of cards with it. Loved the gift card holder card we did in class, and sent it to my grandsons with an Amazon gift card. The younger one loved the card and played with it for quite some time,
    Merry Christmas!
