Stampin’ Up So Santa Christmas Card for Freshly Made Sketches #360

Good Monday morning everyone.  Hope you all had a wonderful weekend and you are enjoying this fall weather.  The leaves are all starting to change to their beautiful reds and yellows.  I love going out walking this time of year and admiring all the beautiful trees.

For todays card, I played along with the Freshly Made Sketches #360 Challenge.  Be sure to stop by the challenge blog to see all the amazing projects everyone has made and to play along.  Here is the sketch for Freshly Made Sketches.

I used the adorable So Santa stamp set for my card today.  Here is what I came up with for the sketch.  Take a look.

I started with a piece of Whisper White cardstock and stamped the Santa riding the scooter image, from the So Santa stamp set, in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  I colored him in using my Basic Black, Cherry Cobbler, Crumb Cake,  Ivory, Real Red, Shaded Spruce and Smoky Slate Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I cut the image out using my Big Shot and the Oval from the Stitched Shaped Framelits Dies.  I edged the artwork using my Shaded Spruce Stampin’ Write Marker.

It’s very hard to see in these pictures, I embossed a panel of Cherry Cobbler cardstock using my Big Shot with the Subtle Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.  I adhered the Cherry Cobbler to a Whisper White mat using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  Using my Big Shot, I cut one of the images from the Snowfall Thinlits Dies (available November 1-30, 2018), in Sparkle Glimmer Paper.  Using Multipurpose Liquid Glue I adhered it to the Cherry Cobbler panel.  I adhered the artwork over the die cut using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I adhered a panel of Shaded Spruce cardstock to a Thick Whisper White card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the card front to the top of the Shaded Spruce panel using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside Whisper White panel I stamped the Holly & Berry image, from the So Santa stamp set, across the top and colored it in using my Shaded Spruce and Cherry Cobbler Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I stamped the sentiment from the So Santa stamp set, in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink in the center of the panel.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Cherry Cobbler mat using Snail than to a Shaded Spruce mat using Snail.  I adhered the double matted panel to the Thick Whisper White card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped part of the Santa riding the scooter image, from the So Santa stamp set,  on the bottom right front of the envelope and colored him in the same way I did my card.  I stamped the Holly & Berry image across the top of the envelope flap and colored them in the same as I did for my card.

Thank you so much for stopping by my blog today. I hope you liked my card.  These Santa images are so much fun to color and the Stampin’ Blends Markers make it so easy.  Happy Stamping!
