Stampin’ Up So Santa for the Paper Players Challenge #416

Good Thursday morning everyone.  Before I get to my card, do you know what day it is?  It’s November 1st and do you know what that means?  The SNOWFLAKE SHOWCASE products are available starting TODAY!!!  Here’s what we have:

Snow Is Glistening Stamp Set,

Happiness Surrounds Stamp Set,

Snowfall Thinlits Dies,

the absolutely gorgeous White Velvet Sheet

and the beautiful Snowflake Trinkets.

If you’re wanting any of these items, I’d get them as soon as possible.  Supplies are limited and they are only available for the month of November.

Now onto today’s card.

For today’s card I used the So Santa stamp set and played along with the Paper Players Sketch Challenge # 416.  Be sure to stop by the Paper Players blog to see all the amazing projects everyone has made and to play along.  Here is the sketch I got to work with.

Here is my take on the sketch.  Take a look.

I started with 2 pieces of Festive Farmhouse Designer Series Paper.  I adhered the plaid one to a Cherry Cobbler mat using Snail.  For the wood grain piece of DSP I first ran it through my Big Shot using the Pinewood Planks Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder then I adhered it to a Cherry Cobbler mat. I adhered the 2 matted pieces to a Gray Granite card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I adhered a thin strip of Cherry Cobbler cardstock across the 2 matted pieces using Glue Dots then wrapped a piece of Shaded Spruce Metallic Ribbon around the card front.

On a small piece of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the Santa holding the plate of cookies from the So Santa stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  I colored him in using my Basic Black, Cherry Cobbler, Crumb Cake, Ivory and Shaded Spruce Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered the artwork to a Cherry Cobbler mat using Snail then to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I adhered the card front to a Cherry Cobbler card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On the inside Whisper White panel I stamped the Holly and Berries from the So Santa stamp set across the top in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink and colored them in with my Cherry Cobbler and Shaded Spruce Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I stamped the sentiment in Gray Granite Ink in the center.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Gray Granite mat using Snail and to the card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the Holly and Berries across the bottom front of the envelope and colored them in the same as I did for my card.  I adhered a panel of Festive Farmhouse DSP to the envelope flap using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today.  I hope you liked my card and will give it a try.  I really had a lot of fun making this one.  Happy Stamping!
