Hi there, hope all is well with you. I'm here once again with one last Christmas card before I switch gears for some art journal play time.
This is my last German scrap Santa from the set I bought many years ago. All the patterned paper I put with him seemed to detract from him, so I ended up going with this monochrome green color palette (plus a lot of black and white).
I chose this Splitcoaststampers sketch for my layout design and with my card to show how I followed it.
Ok, on an A7 winter white card base, the black bottom layer is heavy construction paper cut with a Sizzix Thinlits Falling Stars die. Next layer is the green SU card on which I adhered some handmade pulp paper I've used before for a snowy ground. But before adhering I cut it with 3 different Lawn Fawn Stitched Hillside Dies aall at once, then lined back up on the green card. Top focal layer has a bit of leftover snow paper from cutting the top hill and gives the german scrap Santa something to stand on. He's on more black paper with a few of the stars that were cut out of the Sizzix die. The SeeD's sentiment and Lawn Fawn banner were stamped with Versamark and heat-embossed with white powder, then cut with the matching die (LF Bannerific Stamps/Dies). I added 2 little stars and popped up on dimensionals.
A close-up of the handmade pulp paper snow. Love this stuff.
I matted the inside of the card with some of Tim Holtz's Seasonal Collage Paper Stash. I haven't quite decided on which sentiment stamps to use, so I'll wait until I know who is receiving it and then stamp on a die cut shape and add.
I cut into a very old sheet of Rusty Pickle to layer on the green Bazzill adding a scrap of the backside of Tim's paper from the inside and a stamped and punched siggie.
And final view. Thanks for visiting me today and enjoy your weekend! XOX
