Santa Stop Here

Hi Bloggers.

Here's today's card -

For the background, I ran a piece of Coconut White Card through the Grand Calibur with the Spellbinders Holiday Magic M-Bossabilities Folder. I ran it through a second time to extend the design and inked around the edges with Fired Brick Distress Ink. I pressed some Victorian Metal Corners into a Perfect Medium Ink Pad, added Cosmic Shimmer Christmas Red Sparkle Embossing Powder and heat set. I attached them to the corners of the background using Cosmic Shimmer Dries Clear Glue.

I stamped the Santa image from the Justrite Christmas Labels 22 Stamp Set using Vermillion Archival. I cut it out using Justrite Vintage Labels Three Dies and inked through the die with Fired Brick. I cut a Spellbinders Heitloom Ornament 2011 out of Burgundy Card and embossed through the die with the Spellbinders Holiday Magic M-Boss. I tied a knot in a piece of Burgundy/Ivory Striped Grosgrain.

I stamped the sentiment from the Justrite Holiday Magic Stamp Set using Vermillion Archival. I cut it out using Justrite Vintage Labels Two Dies and inked through the die with Fired Brick. I cut the pointy end off a wooden cocktail stick and glued it to the back of the sentiment panel.

I assembled the card as shown adding some dots of Cosmic Shimmer Pearlescent PVA in Berry Red around the edges.

Thanks for stopping by.
