Santa Holiday Card

To make this holiday card:
1. Fold a half sheet of cardstock for your card base and stamp with a background.
2. Cut two layers of cardstock to desired size. Use different colors with one being neutral.
3. Stamp image on neutral cardstock and then color it in. Use corner tool to make decorative edges, here the ticket corner punch was used, adhere to colored cardstock.
4. Use slit punch or corner rounder punch to make a scalloped edge for a decorative accent piece and then stamp.
5. Adhere under the colored cardstock.
6. Adhere finished colored cardstock to the base card.
7. Use a bead of glue and glitter to add some dazzle to your card. Here it was used on the trim of the Santa suit.
The stamp set used here is retired, but the card idea can be used with any other holiday stamp set. One suggestion would be It's Snow Time (page 37, Fall/Winter Collection catalog).
Cardstock: River Rock, Bravo Burgandy, Always Artichoke, and Very Vanilla.
Accessories: glitter, slit punch, ticket corner punch, and crystal effects.
