Happy Holiday’s!!! Its that time of the year. As I began to prepare for my next few Holiday card stamp camps I remembered a very popular request. Several ladies asked me if we could make a Christmas card that they could creatively insert a family picture. This fabulously fun “Jolly Old Saint Nick” card was what I came up with. I loved it!
I started with a 5-1/2″ x 4-1/4″ piece of real red card stock. I like to layer so I added a 5-1/4″ x 4″ piece of whisper white to the top. Next, I cut a 5″ x 3-3/4″ piece of fabric from my odds and ends collection and glued it on top of the whisper white card stock. Check out the texture of this fabric… pretty cool!
Next I folded a piece of real red card stock in half. I placed it just over my Scallop Circle Bigz die so that a few scallops were not covered on the die. This will give you a scallop card that opens. I then used my Big Shot and the Clear Circle Bigz die to cut out a whisper white circle to center on the front of my scallop and one to center on my inside scallop, aka, the inside of my card.
Once you have your scallop circle card you want to glue the bottom one to the top of you base fabric & card stock. I know my picture really didn’t work with this circle die; however, it was the only photo laying around that I had multiples of. I thought it would work well enough to give you the general idea behind my picture card.
I stamped Jolly Old Saint Nick in StazOn black. I used a real red marker to color his hat. A two way glue pen and some dazzling diamonds glitter to add sparkle to his had and beard. Lastly, I used a blushing blossom stampin write marker to add color to his face. Stamp and add your greeting and your done!
