Jolly Old St. Nick for Merry Monday



It's Monday and time for another Merry Monday challenge! This week will be my final week as a Featured Designer with Merry Monday, and I have to say I really had fun and will miss it. Big thanks to the Design Team for having me aboard! So on to this week's challenge, which is to use Santa on your card!


I pulled out lots of vintage delicousness for this card! The stamp set, DSP and ribbon are all retired Stampin' Up products, but I hope you find some inspiration in the colors and layout, and you can always substitute current products if you want to re-create it. This card was fairly simple to create. Scroll down to the list of ingredients which will explain it all!


Stampin' Up Products Used:
Stamp Sets: Jolly Old St. Nick
Card Stock: Bashful Blue, Cherry Cobbler, Very Vanilla
Designer Series Paper: Festival of Prints
Ink Pads: Black Stazon, Bashful Blue, Cherry Cobbler, Basic Black
Tools: Aqua Painter, Big Shot, Circles Framelits, Circles Die #2, Large Oval and Scallop Oval Punch
Accessories: Bashful Blue Satin Ribbon

Thanks for visiting and be sure to visit the rest of the Design Team at Merry Monday!

  4. I agree with Bonnie, so lovely to see your wonderful creations here each week. Here we have another one. I adore the colours and papers you have used, in particular the blood red, my favorite. Your Santa is fabulous with his sack full of gifts. A gorgeous card.
