Dear Santa

Happy Tuesday, everyone! It's Cassie back with another card. Today's card came to me as I was making another card and I ran with it. I decided to take the sentiments from the new Dear Santa set and make them into a funny little holiday card for someone who-*gasp*-might be on the naughty list!

Let's take a look at the card!

This card was pretty darn simple to make, and it is another non-tradition holiday color combo like I've been so into lately. I started by stamping the pine branch from the Trim the Tree all over a piece of Bristol Smooth cardstock. Then I took my Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers and colored in the branches and background. I went simple with the colors so that it wasn't too busy. When the panel was dry I splatter black and white paint over it-a look I've been loving lately!

Then I die cut some paper to write my letters. You can hardly tell in the photos due to the lighting, but I did use a T-ruler to give the paper blue horizontal lines and a pink vertical line on the left side. Then I took the sentiments from the Dear Santa set and stamped the "Dear Santa" at the top of each letter. I did cut the sentiment apart, as the "is it too late to be good?" was attached, but you don't have to if that makes you cringe. You can just mask off the part that you don't want to stamp. Part of the reason I did cut mine apart was that I wanted the words to fit nicely in the blue lines I had drawn in, but again-you don't have to do that. I continued by stamping the rest of the sentiments. I wanted it to look as though someone had started a couple letters and finally settled on the last one, so I crossed out the first two letters contents with my ruler. I popped the letters up with some foam tape and added a couple of white enamel dots, and that's it for this card!

Thank you so much for joining me today! Do you think you'll make the nice list this year?! Or do you know anyone who would have to write a couple letters like this? I know I do! :) I hope you liked the card. Have a great week, and I'll see you again soon with another card!
