Today I am sharing a project that is just one example of how to make Santa Claus greeting cards that are cute enough for kids but tongue in cheek enough for adults. Take a peek:
SO cute, right? This is a must have set in my book! I LOVE this bundle – and for this one, I really don't think you can live without the framelits like you can with some bundles. This one is kinda like peanut butter and jelly – it just doesn't work with both.
And seriously… how adorbs is that stamp set? I have been waiting on this set forever. Many years ago I purchased similar images to this – but they weren't in a set. So I had a ginormous hat with a little jacket – it just wasn't to scale.
THIS kind of attention to that sort of thing and color coordination is why I started buying from Stampin' Up! I needed it for me!!! Then I realized I was not the only one with the issue and that is when I became a demo. This is also why I have stayed with them. Product coordination with color coordination is what SU is REALLY the best at. And this is a perfect example of that.
Do you just LOVE those little Santa Suit pieces? And this uses that FABULOUS color combo of Real Red, Crumb Cake and Whisper White like I did here and here. This is what I love about preparing for my annual Christmas card production because I can pick one product grouping as my basis and then switch in and out stuff from my stash. AND you can even mix and match framelits within a project like I did here. The tag Thinlit is from a thinlit set that might appear to be a “birthday” set. I bought that thinlit set for the tags – I never actually bought the coordinating stamp set that goes with it. And here you can see it's just perfect!
And this is a PERFECT card for the card making sesh I described here. This cute little project goes together so fast you will probably be able to combine days and get these done WAY ahead of time. Remember, you can arrange your framelits and thinlits on your card stock pieces so one cranking session can give you ALL the pieces for ONE card at a time! Here's what else you are going to want to set aside or order to make this cutie:
You've got this one for sure – looks like a ton of work but isn't, is super fun to make, doesn't use a gazillion supplies, and is seriously entertaining for your recipients. And now you know how to make Santa Claus greeting cards with Stampin' Up!
