Signs of Santa for Christmas Card Buffet Class

This coming Saturday, I will be doing a Christmas Card Buffet class and I needed one last sample for it. I had several beautiful cards and I needed one more cute design, so I got out the Signs of Santa stamp set to see what I could come up with. Now with a Card Buffet, the class members are completing up to 16 cards in 3 hours so they have to be fairly simple to do. I hope this one will be okay if I do some of the die cutting ahead of time. It not only features the Signs of Santa bundle but also the Hometown Greetings Edgelit dies for the village.

You can see how I created that here:

  • I die cut the one edgelit twice, once in Poppy Parade and once in Whisper White. I trimmed off the trees on both die cuts, because there are no trees at the North Pole, right? and then I also trimmed the snowman off the red piece and all the houses off the white one. Then I adhered them together so that the white would make the ground snowy instead of red. 
  • This was mounted on a Whisper White panel run through the Big Shot with the Softly Falling Embossing Folder.
  • I stamped the sentiment from Signs of Santa at the bottom first, in Memento Tuxedo Black ink.
  • Santa and the signpost images were stamped in the same ink and coloured in with Stampin' Write Markers: I used Poppy Parade, Crushed Curry, Pool Party, Crumb Cake, Powder Pink and Blushing Bride. 
  • These two images and the three large snowflakes were die cut with framelits from the Santa's Signposts Framelits and added to the card front with Stampin' Dimensionals and the mini versions as well. 
  • Rhinestones were added to the center of the snowflakes. This panel was adhered to a Poppy Parade card base.
