It is my last card this year for my Perfect Combos series for Heffy Doodle, and as it is Christmas in 2 days, it had to be a Santa card. I mixed and matched a few stamps and dies to create this cheerful slimline card, let me guide you through the process.
First I stamped and coloured the images from the Santa’s Village stamp set using Spectrum Noir Illustrator markers. The list of colours I used: AG2, AG1, FS8, FS7, FS4, CT3, CT1, DR5, DR3, DR1, BG9, BG7, BG4, BG2, BG1. Then I used the coordinating dies to cut them out.
I used the Slimline Mini Mail die set with the window die from Slimline Quartet to create a fun frame for my scene from pretty patterned paper from Doodlebug Designs. I needed a blue background for the sky, so I cut the Slimline Mini Mail die from Iceblast cardstock and cut a piece of Cherry on top cardstock to be slightly bigger than that, to serve as a mat.
For the snowbanks I used white glitter cardstock and cut it with the Slimline Scenery die set.
As a finishing touch I added little white gems as snow and used glossy accents to emphasize some details.
Extra tip: If you have some leftover coloured images, you can make quick tags while you have the supplies out. For this cutie I used the Mini Essentials die set and all leftovers from the cardmaking session. A bit of red twine and it was all done! Isn’t is sweet?
I hope you enjoyed my card inspiration and my series all year long. I still have some Christmas cards to show you, so keep checking back during the holidays!
See you soon,
