Santa Stache

SantaGCH1Welcome to the Create with Connie and Mary Thursday Challenge!  Now usually for the Thursday Challenge we have a sketch or a color challenge for you, but with Christmas quickly approaching we decided to do gift card holders!

I had VERY limited time to get my gift card holder done so I decided to go with that concept of simple and EASY!!!  And honestly…I think the only thing easier than my gift card holder is buying a pre-made one…but then you would have to go to a store for that!

Here’s the details…

  • Trim the Tree print – 4 x 6 1/2.  Score at 3 and 6.  Fold and put together.
  • Garden Green – 2 1/2 x 9 3/4.  Score at 1 1/2 and 5 3/4.  Fold.
  • Cut one end into a point (I did min off center for a little different look.
  • Stamp inside with greeting.
  • Trim the Tree print – 1/2 x 4.  Add to top flap and trim.
  • Whisper White – stamp Santa using Memento Black, color using Blendabilities:  Cherry Cobbler, Calypso Coral, Skin Tones.  Cut out.  Stamp mustache, cut out and add using dimensionals.
  • Add Santa to flap using dimensionals.
  • Decorate hat, beard and mustache using Dazzling Details.

Here’s some other pictures…

Santa Stache

CCMC327This Santa is just THE CUTEST and I couldn’t resist using him for the Create with Connie and Mary Thursday Challenge this week (a fun SKETCH challenge!).  I used him for a project I made for the Create with Connie and Mary Holiday Collection 2014 and had an extra ‘sitting on top of my desk’ so I just HAD to put him to good use!

This is really a very simple card and you really can’t see the ‘sparkle’ I added to the beard/mustache/hat on Santa, the Candy Dots and the embossed snowflakes on the Lost Lagoon panel.

Here’s the Details –

  • Cherry Cobbler – 4 1/4 x 11 folded
  • Snowflake print – Trim the Tree dsp – 4 x 5 1/4, lay at an angle on the Cherry Cobbler base and trim
  • Lost Lagoon – 1 x 4 1/4, run through Lucky Stars Embossing Folder and add to card front
  • Stamp Santa on Whisper White using Memento Black ink, color hat with Cherry Cobbler Blendabilities and face with Skin Tone Blendabilities, cut out and add to card front using dimesionals.
  • Stamp mustache a second time, cut out and add using dimensionals
  • Stamp greeting using Memento Black on Kraft – 1/2 x 2 1/4, cut into a banner and add using dimensionals
  • Add Pool Party Candy Dots to top
  • Add Dazzling Details to the candy dots, Santa, and embossed stars to finish off.
