Santa's List - Two Ways

There's a great new Santa image in the Holiday Catalog this season. 
It was among the first stamps I ordered because I knew the vintage feel of it would have me creating many, many projects. 
Here are the first two:

#131811 - Santa's List Stamp Set clear mount  $12.95
This card came together so easily - a simple layered color background - Cherry Cobbler cardstock - combined with  a focal image of Cherry Cobbler embossing on Crumb Cake cardstock keeps the vintage feel with a contemporary square card size. The focal image was cut out with my Big Shot and the Window Frames Framelits and I sponged the edge with Crumb Cake ink.

I used the new embossing folder Pretty Print on the background layer and covered a few of the embossed words with my 2 Way Glue Pen and some Gold Glitter. The ribbon bow is a piece of the new Cherry Cobbler 1" Stitched Edge Grosgrain Ribbon. It's adhered with a Glue Dot or two behind the knot.

Here's a slightly stepped up version of the same card:

On this one, I wrapped a length of ribbon around the front flap of the card, under the focal image and knotted it off on the right side. I added a greeting stamped in Soft Suede on Very Vanilla that I then hand cut with my Paper Snips and sponged with some Crumb Cake ink. A little extra step or two, but so worth it for some extra oomph. 

Most of these products are found in the Holiday Catalog and you can shop for any or all of them in my Online Store.
