I've used the Inkadinkado Santa Collage stamp which is a stylish and sophisticated image of Santa Claus I think. I've used Cherry Cobbler, Crumb Cake and Very Vanilla as my colour combo. After die cutting the shaped card I stamped the image, trimmed it to size, inked the edges and layered it onto a Cherry Cobbler mat. I embossed the Crumb Cake panel with a snowflakes embossing folder and added a strip of Cherry Cobbler ribbon. I've elevated the Santa panel (a posher way of saying I popped it up, elevated is what my friend Carol at card group always says!) I then cut some Cherry Cobbler tulle, threaded it through a ribbon slider and hot glued that to the ribbon to finish the card front. A simple card design but I'm happy how this turned out!
I die cut a Very Vanilla piece for inside the card, inked the edges and stamped a sentiment and some snowflakes. I love that retro font!
For the envelope, I stamped the snowflakes a few times across the front and added a punched square Santa image.
I do hope you'll add a Santa card to your Christmas card stash by playing along with our challenge this week - don't forget to check out the fab cards from the other DT members before you go off to create!
