SCH Believe in Santa Claus

Greetings all!! I tried to use one of the digis from Sugar Creek Hollow that I hadn't used yet. That was our challenge this week, and I had a lot of fun with the ones that I chose. We are going to be taking a two week break for the holidays, but we will be back January 8th with some fresh designs for you!

I used the Christmas Plaque to make a background paper, and I printed it out on a piece of Basic Grey Mistletoe and Pear. I mounted it on Basic Black, and the card base is Riding Hood Red. I then printed out the Santa Claus card on Riding Hood Red, cut it down, and rounded the corners. I added black pearls to the tips of the letters. I printed the "Believe" sentiment (my absolute favorite) on Riding Hood Red and used my small oval punch from Stampin' Up and mounted it on the next highest size of punch. I finished off the look with silver pearls in the corner and a faux bow on the bottom. The Santa bingo card is from a set from October Afternoon that I purchased recently at Archivers. My little Santa in the background is a Swedish Santa candle holder...isn't he cute?

I wish all of you a very Merry Christmas and the most blessed New Year!

Do you know what I love about this card? How masculine it is. That's tough to do when designing vintage because so many of us go straight to pearls and lace as accents. The colors and design are great. Very nice!
