Two Santa Christmas Cards With Vintage Vibes~

Today we have not one but two Santa Christmas cards made for us by Lisa using our new Santa Postcard set. We just love that Lisa added to the vintage feel we baked into this set with her fantastic details.

Here’s her first card:

As we said, Lisa added lots of vintage-y details to this project and it starts with her snowflake panel! She used our Snowflake Frame stamp on a piece of white card stock with gold embossing powder. Lisa then used the largest Rectangle Small Stitch Die to cut that panel and then mounted the cut piece back onto the plaid panel with the finest of black layers. She then echoed that effect by adding another fine black layer behind the patterned paper on her card front. PRO TIP: If you don’t want extra layers, you can always apply black ink to the edges for a similar effect.

For her focal element – Santa! – Lisa cut two circles in layering sizes from the same plaid paper and black card stock using the Nested Stitched Circles, adhered them together and attached them to the center of the snowflake panel. The circles were cut using the Nested Stitched Circle dies in black and plaid, adhered together and then attached to the snowflake panel.

She stamped Santa and her other images,cut them out with the coordinating dies, colored Santa in with her Copics and cut some evergreen trees from green card stock. Once she had a layout she liked, Lisa stamped the postal marks (the wavy lines) directly onto the snowflake panel and then adhered all her components using varying thicknesses of dimensional adhesive.

Now for her second card, Lisa kept the plaid going as a backdrop for her second Santa!

Lisa cut the wreath multiple times from green card stock. She attached the pieces to the included wreath base so they were all pointing in the same direction, working from the left to the right, layering until she had a look worthy of Santa himself. Lisa used Nuvo Drops to add her berries and set it aside to dry THOROUGHLY. (Because is there anything more annoying than smearing a HOLLY BERRY??) Lisa kept a few pieces of die cut foliage aside but added berries to them too.

Meanwhile, Lisa cut a black card front panel and added a panel of plaid patterned paper cut using the largest of the Rectangle Stitch Dies. She then cut a frame using the Rectangle Combo OPC Die from black card stock. She added this frame over the plaid using foam tape.

Then she stamped her image, cut them out with the coordinating dies and colored Santa in with her Copics. She added her elements to her card with dimensional adhesive and used those reserved pieces of foliage to tuck under her greeting.

Here are the items Lisa used today on her two Santa Christmas cards:
