So Santa Christmas Card Ideas with Stampin’ Blends

As I was coloring these cute So Santa images with my Stampin’ Blends alcohol markers, I was thinking about how I would add them to a card or project, and I thought about this Delightfully Detailed laser paper … I layered it onto Lovely Lipstick and Real Red cardstock and I kind of thought it looked like poinsettias in the background.. what do you think?

I hope you enjoy these So Santa Christmas card ideas.  I just thought they were so fun and happy and cheerful!!

Crafting Tip!

When using the Sweetly Stitched heart and tree framelit dies, line up the framelit that does the stitching impression with the one that does the outline cut and adhere them together with one of these Post-it note flags shown below.  That way they will keep the right spacing and you’ll have a perfect die cut/stitched image each time!

Crafting Tip for using the Stampin' UP! Sweetly Stitched framelit hearts and Christmas Tree, by Patty Bennett www.pattystamps.com

The Delightfully Detailed Laser Cut Paper was fun to use on this project.  I think it looks like poinsettias when you overlay it on red cardstock.  🙂

The So Santa images were stamped in Memento Black ink on Whisper White cardstock and colored with Stampin’ Blends alcohol markers.  They are die cut with the Stitched Shape framelit dies and I matted them onto Coastal Cabana and Pineapple Punch scalloped circle die cuts.

You will find the fun stitched hearts in the Sweetly Stitched framelit die pack, pg 25 of the 2018 Stampin’ Up! Holiday catalog.  I die cut them with Lovely Lipstick cardstock using the tip noted above in this post.

The final touch was some Granny Apple Green 1/2″ ribbon on the card above, and some Pool Party & Silver Baker’s Twine on the other card in this post.  I also added some Red Rhinestones for a touch of glitz. 🙂

  • Festive Farmhouse #147820 (pg 13 Holiday catalog)

All of the coffee cups are die cut with the Coffee Cups framelits dies and the Big Shot machine.  I used Whisper White cardstock and the designer paper packs listed above in this post.  After they were assembled, I stamped and punched the bow from the Candy Cane punch and attached those with Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I stamped the greeting with Real Red ink using the Coffee Cafe stamp set. It’s such a fun greeting and a perfect way to give a Starbucks gift card to a friend!  Check out THIS BLOG POST for instructions and ideas for adding a gift card inside.

Dimensions:

To create this style of card, I used the Thick Whisper White cardstock for the base, cut it at 4-1/4″ x 11″ and scored it at 5-1/2″ and folded it in half.  I cut off 2-3/4″ from the front and added the 2-1/2″ x 4″ piece of designer paper to the front flap.

I took a bunch of these cards to the Stampin’ UP! OnStage event in Orlando last week to swap with other demonstrators.  I also used some for Customer Thank You cards.  If you placed an order recently in my online store, you may have received one of these!

I put a Pearlized Doily behind each coffee cup, and also added some embellishments from the Santa’s Workshop suite.. unfortunately those are sold out now. 🙁
