Fab Friday Sketch Challenge: Santa List

Happy Friday!!!!  Whoo hoo!!! I'm super excited since today officially starts our vacation and I can't wait.  With it being this close to Christmas you know that's all that's on the brain to I have to get a few last minute projects done before Christmas.  For today's Fab Friday sketch challenge I decided to use the oh, so awesome Santa's List stamp set.  The classic image in this set is so fun and I decided to mix it with some bling as well as some natural texture from the Thankful Tablescape Simply Create Kit (there are lots of fun elements in this kit so make you stock up before the end of the Holiday catalog sales period so you have some in your stash).  The cardbase is Crumb Cake and next I added a piece of the Textured Woodgrain paper from the Tablescape kit for a fun element.  Next I added a piece of Season of Style Designer Series Paper that was cut out with the Big Shot and the Apothecary Accents Framelits (I love that our DSP is double sided for double the options!  I had originally planned to use the reverse print but as the card came together I liked this Old Olive Polka Dot pattern better but didn't have to recut or waste anything since I could just flip it over).

For the main stamped image, the Santa is stamped on Crumb Cake ink with Early Espresso ink before 2 1/2" Circle Punch.  I matted this piece on some of Champagne Shimmer Paper that was cut out with the Big Shot and the Circle Collection Framelits and added some Cherry Cobbler Chevron Ribbon for the tails.  The final touch is the greeting that comes from the same stamp set, was stamped in Early Espresso and then I used the Envelope Punch Board's corner rounder punch to round the corners before sponging around the edge with Cherry Cobbler ink.  Dimensionals were a perfect touch to attach both the Santa piece and the greeting (had to double stack dimensionals on one side of the greeting to match up the layers.

 I really love all the fun texture and dimension in this card, it's fun and playful.  I hope you enjoyed the card and got some inspiration if you're still working on cards or other projects for the holidays (time is quickly running out).
Take care and have a great weekend!
