Colorful Christmas Card

Merry & Bright Holiday Colors

Let one of Santa’s elves deliver a colorful message this year in your handmade holiday card.  This simple card comes together quickly and is easily customized.  For today’s project I’ve selected the sentiment “you made the nice list”, but not all of my recipients will be so lucky!

Step By Step Instructions

White Daisy card with envelope
Clover cardstock 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″
White Daisy cardstock 4″ x 5 1/4″ plus scrap for die cutting
Snowflake embossing folder
Holly Jolly Cardmaking kit stamp and Thin Cuts
Black Exclusive Inks Stamp Pad
3D Foam tape
  1. Emboss White Daisy cardstock with Snowflake folder.  Mat with Clover cardstock and adhere to card front
  2. Die cut both pieces of the elf and his sign from White Daisy cardstock
  3. Using Black ink, stamp elf face and body onto die cut pieced.  Stamp sign frame and sentiment “you made the nice list”
  4. Color stamped images as desired
  5. Place the sign under the elf’s eyes and gently lift the end of his hat to overlap.  Secure with adhesive
  6. Adhere elf and sign to card front with 3D foam tape

I love the versatility of this stamp and Thin Cuts set.  I even featured this set in my Best Stamp Sets from the Holiday Catalog post.  Customize the sign to create a funny card, a gift tag, or a place card or use the present stamp and die cut to fill his arms with gifts.  I can’t wait to see what you make with Santa’s helper.  Please share your ideas in the comments
