Santa Claus


Hello!


This Christmas scene card is made up of Santa and Mrs. Claus exchanging gifts in front of the fire; which just goes to show that they are more prepared for the holiday than I am...only 8 DAYS away! HaHa!


To start, I used up some more of my precolored images from the Daily Marker 30 day coloring challenge. The images were from the sets Ho-ho-holidays, Home for the Holidays, and Christmas Dreams from Lawn Fawn.



I stamped out a Christmas tree, a fireplace, and some additional presents from Christmas Dreams onto some Neenah 80 lb. card stock. I then colored them in with copic markers to match the rest of the images.

At the very end, I also ended up stamping out and coloring these three stockings to balance out the scene.


After the coloring was complete, I added white highlights using a Gelly Roll pen and cut everything out with my Scan 'N Cut. For a final touch, I added some sparkle and shine with a Spectrum Noir Sparkle pen. ✨


I used a DCWV paper pad called Very Merry to put together the rest of the scene. I used a piece of wood grain patterned paper for the floor and a polka dot paper for the walls. I also used another piece of polka dot paper to create a frame.


I cut out an A2 sized panel from 110 lb. black cardstock and trimmed down the patterned papers, leaving an 1/8" border, to create the room. I also used a cream colored card stock to create a 1/4" strip for the trim.


I used the scalloped rectangle frames from Craftin Desert Divas, which I was lucky enough to pick up from the shop before it sadly closed, to cut out the frame. I added a single layer of foam tape to the back for a little added dimension.


The fancy folded banner die from Lawn Fawn and some green Recollections card stock, made up the banner on which I stamped the sentiment. I used the "Season's Greetings" stamp from the Home for the Holidays stamp set and heat embossed it with white detail embossing powder.


I then started to glue everything down with Tombow mono liquid adhesive. Once, everything was in place, I took the sentiment banner and popped it up in the corner of the scene with some foam tape.


At this point, the scene was finished, but this is where I thought it needed something on the sides of the fireplace and so I added the additional stocking images to either side.


Before attaching the main panel to the card base, I stamped the sentiment "May all your holiday dreams come true" in Gina K. amalgam black ink and heat embossed it with clear embossing powder.


For the final step, I added the main panel to the base using liquid adhesive.



Thank you so much for stopping by!


I hope you have a wonderful holiday. :)
