One of my favorite die sets in the July -December 2021 Mini Catalog is Giving Gifts. I love Santa and his reindeer, and the frame can be easily snipped away.  For today’s card, I used Night of Navy Cardstock, leaving the bottom of the frame for gluing to the sentiment label.

Santa in the forest


The sentiment is from one of my favorite stamp sets in the catalog, Heartfelt Wishes. Isn’t the font fabulous? I stamped “happiest holidays” in Night of Navy Ink on Thick Basic White Cardstock, used an Ornate Layers Die for cutting, and placed it on Dimensionals.


I used the same Ornate Layers Die to cut the three panels behind Santa. This is Beauty of the Earth Designer Paper in a sketchy, blue, forest pattern, that I thought Santa and his reindeer would enjoy. 


Behind the three panels is Basic White Cardstock, 4″ X 5 1/4″, embossed with one of the Wintry Embossing Folders on an angle. It’s one of the narrow embossing folders that fits in the Mini Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machines, with details in my Product List below. I glued the embossed pine boughs to a Thick Basic White card base, 8 1/2″ X 5 1/2″, folded at 4 1/4″.

Finally, I added three, bright, Rhinestones to light the way, and my card was complete.


I was inspired by TGIF.
