Vintage Style ~ Santa’s List

It’s the day before Christmas so I thought this would be the perfect project to share with all of you today!  Believe it or not, the Santa’s List stamp set was one of the last stamp sets I decided to purchase this year.  I wasn’t really sure I liked the images…that is…until I actually saw some projects with them!  I can’t believe that I had such a crafter’s block with this set…lol!  Anyways, as you can see I finally purchased it and I have made several different projects with this set! I love it!

This is my favorite creation with Santa’s List thus far…mainly because it is a vintage style Christmas card. 🙂  To make this card, start out with a piece of baked brown sugar cardstock for your base. Cut a 5 1/4 x 4 inch piece of cherry cobbler cardstock and then a 5 x 3 3/4 inch piece of whisper white cardstock. Emboss the whisper white cardstock using the beautifully baroque embossing folder and then sponge it with baked brown sugar ink to give it that worn look. Take a 3 x 3 inch piece of white cardstock and stamp the Santa image in black stazon ink…I used stazon because I colored Santa’s coat, hat and cheeks using a blender pen. Then cut out the Santa image using a 2 3/8 inch scalloped circle punch (I also punched out a 2 1/2 inch circle in cherry cobbler paper just to matte out the Santa image. Next, cut a 1 x4 inch piece of whisper white cardstock and stamp a Christmas sentiment on it using cherry cobbler ink…sponge the edges in baked brown sugar and cut the end into a pennant. Tie a bit of linen thread around the top half of a folded piece of the cherry cobbler chevron ribbon…thread a vintage faceted button on it and tie a bow. Secure the ribbon to the left side of the card using glue dots. Voila! Now you have yourself a great little vintage Christmas card!
