Merry Christmas The Paper Players Challenge PP620

 December 4, 2022

It's Sunday and time for a new challenge at The Paper Players.  

LeAnne is the hostess this week and she has a very fun Theme Challenge for all of us!  I love Santa and there are so many Santa stamps out there.  I can't wait to see all the fun creations this week! 

I added a red panel to the top of a white card base.  Then I used a piece of patterned paper for the next layer and distressed it on the edges with a distress tool.  I added Frayed Burlap ink with a sponge to the edges of all the layers.  I then used a coordinating strip and polka dot to make the rectangle layers.  A piece of Crisp Khaki was added to the top layer.  The Santa is stamped in red ink using a Tim Holtz Christmas Memories stamp set.  I also added distress ink around him to make him look antiqued.  I used the matching dies to cut him out.  The sentiment is from the same stamp set.  I also added the holly stamps around the edges from this set, too!  The twine was added around the card and to make the bow.

  5. Your Santa card is adorable, Claire! I love the artwork style on the Santa, he looks like he's calling for his reindeer :)

  6. Your santa is wonderful, Claire. I love the vintage feel but then there is that pop of modernism with the polka dot background DSP. I love it!

  7. Claire, red, kraft, distressing and a vintage Santa! Love them all! The striped strip echoes the Santa image beautifully!
