I’m back to show you more of the old fashioned Christmas that can be found in the Father Christmas stamp set.

The first card I CASE’d directly from the sample in the holiday catalog. I may have used a different DSP and colored him a bit differently, but the layout is exactly the same. This card uses all but one of the stamps in the set, and of course, I had to use the Stitched Shape Framelits Dies. I just can’t get enough of these.  (NOTE:  If you want these, be sure to click on the tile below in the supply list. They are only available for a short time – during the month of November. If you don’t get them now, you will have to wait until June when the new Annual catalog comes out.)

Santa was colored using the Stampin’ Write Markers. Just look at the detail in this stamp. It’s just so beautiful, don’t you think? I also used the stamp that was used on the bottom of the card to decorate the flap on my envelope. Don’t forget to jazz up your envelopes to match your card! It’s such a nice added touch that doesn’t take that long to do.

OK, one more Santa card…

This one I did a wee bit of masking on his lower right hand side so I could put his bag of goodies slightly behind him. I purposely chose not to color him in this time. Stamping it in Crumb Cake give it a old-time sepia look.

If you order the Stitched Shape Framelit Dies, you’ll get circles, ovals, and squares, but you do not get rectangles. But you can see in this card, I was able to make a rectangle.  If you would like to know how I did that, drop me a line and I’d be happy to tell you.

Next time I will show you a few more cards from this set that doesn’t use the Santa…oops…Father Christmas at all.

Until then…keep on crafting!
