Hello stampers! As promised, here is the continuation of the Santa’s Workshop post with some more great cards using the stamp set in this suite called Signs of Santa. In today’s post you will see some super simple cards that I made in less than thirty seconds using the coordinating Memories and More pack also called Santa’s Workshop. These would be great to make with your kids as a much appreciated teacher gift or to send to family and friends. What a wonderful tradition to include your children in the Christmas card sending tradition. The art of letter writing is almost lost and this is a great way to revive it. I did use the Signs of Santa to make some more intricate cards as well, so there is something for everyone here.
What you can’t really see in these cute cards is the details that take them beyond ordinary. The sparkle on the Santa hat and the ho, ho, ho and the fuzzy velvet on the elves’ hats. The saying on the card on the left is from Signs of Santa.
This super cute card was cased from Tami White. I changed up a few things. I didn’t have any Frost shimmer paint so I used a little embossing paste and dazzling diamonds glitter to bling up the background. I also used a “north pole” sign from the designer series paper instead of colouring my own and I left the sign “wooden”. The lovely snowbank edge is a framelit from Winter Woods.
Does the card above look familiar? I used the leftovers from coffee and a card class where we made Emilie Poncelet’s Pole Nord card and I put the cut outs from the Santa’s Workshop designer series paper on it instead. The next picture shows you the exact same card but with some bling added to the wagon. The enamel shapes that go with this suite are stinkin’ cute!! Which card do you like better? With or without the enamel shapes?
This next picture will show you just how addictive this suite is. Signs of Santa has a ton of cute images and sayings, many of which coordinate with framelits. The whole family will love making fun things together, you can even use the leftover Memories and More cards to make a cute family album. New traditions all around!!
I thought that all the cards together just looks so cute. If you make an assortment like this you won’t get bored by making the same old card for everyone. I see a family and friends card making event in your future. Put on some Christmas music, bake some Christmas cookies and get in the spirit of the season. Making Christmas cards now is much more fun than waiting until December when life gets too hectic.
This last card is a Jackie original. I wanted to showcase the different papers together. Card making is a little bit like quilting in that you like to use different colours and patterns to complement each other. Polka dots make me happy and cheerful and stripes are just so fresh. Together they are amazing!! Add the coastal cabana to the real red and it is just so retro and lovely to me. I hope you like it too. I used a memories and more card for the inside to pretty it up and make it even more special.
This card was inspired by some leftover shimmer white circles from a coffee and a card class. I wanted to do something different for my last card that would show off the different patterned paper. I used this same fold at my Time For Tea class. You can see it here. The fun green and white thick baker’s twine has been a great addition to several cards in this collection. It is all those little touches that really make your card extra special. When I realized that I changed my buying habits. I know get everything I love from one suite rather than buying some from here and some from there. Shop by suite and you will see how much easier it is to create more beautifully.
Here is a short video that shows you how to make this last card. It is sideways (of course this happens once in a while just to keep me humble) but it works just fine. It gives you the dimensions and a peek at the inside of the card too. Have a super day!!
