Fa La La "Tis the Season To Be Jolly Keeping Christmas

April 25, 2020

It's time for this month's installment of the Keeping Christmas Inspriration Blog Hop!  The Challenge Design Team is sharing Christmas creations on the 25th of each month!

The whole idea is to have some Christmas cards and projects in your stash ready to go for December 2020!

So hop along and be sure to visit each blog.
There is a lot of inspiration and ideas to get your creative juices flowing!

My card is created on a green card base.  The top layer is Very Vanilla.  I used a circle die to cut the circle in this layer.  I backed it with a red/vanilla striped paper that I found in my stash.  The Santa is from a pack of Vintage Santas that I got a year ago at Hobby Lobby.  I love these Santas because they remind me of the Coke Santas from when I was a child.  The fa la la die is from Simon Says Stamps Fa La La Making Spirits Bright Set.  I cut the back in green and the top layer in red.  The sentiment is from the same set and stamped in black.  I added a few red enamel dots to complete my card.  This was so simple and easy to make.  I didn't have time to make a set, but I am going to make several of these.  They are certain to make someone smile! 

Thanks for stopping by!  Leave a comment and let me know your thoughts.  I love to hear from you!
