Santa Claus is coming

This is card is just a fun card to make. Our No.3 of this months card class is the perfect card to stand on your mantle, to place a gift card in or just send some join for Christmas. 

For this layout you would need a piece of 5 1/2" x 12" cardstock . I used the slate cardstock color from Close To My Heart for this one. The doted and striped design paper is from the "Sparkle & Shine" paper pack. All stamped images are from the "Santa Claus" (C1567) stamp set which you can find in the Holiday Guide from Close To My Heart. 

Once you open the card it looks like this....

If you like to know how to score and cut the base for this card, please contact me. It is a little bit difficult to explain here on the blog.

The paper elements you need for the card are cut in the following sizes:

- (2x) Doted paper 5 1/2" x 2 1/8"
- (2x) Red cardstock 2" x 2 1/8"
- (1x) Red cardstock 3 1/2" x 2 1/8"
- (4x) Striped paper 1 1/8" x 2"
- (2x) Striped paper 1 1/8" x 3 1/2"

Adhere all paper as shown on the picture above. Make sure that the space around the papers are evenly. The two front and back papers are slightly overlapping each other. A piece of the border that comes with the paper was placed on the front.

A tag design from the Close To My Heart Cricut cartridge was used to cut out a piece of white cardstock and a slightly bigger piece of matching red cardstock. Santa was stamped on the white cardstock and embellished with a glitter pen. Both pieces are centered and adhered to each other. The Santa Claus tag is placed with foam dots in the middle of the front.

Another tag was cut out from the same cartridge and stamped with a Christmas phrase in ruby ink. A few rhinestones were added and this Santa Claus card is done.

This card is available for purchase either to assemble at home or already done for you. Let me know if you are interested in a set.... stay tuned for one more card this month..

I hope all of you will have a wonderful Thanksgiving. Enjoy your time with family and friends.
