Let's Craft and Create Challenge #166: Santa Claus is coming to town!


Can you believe it is December already? For once I don't mind, because the sooner we can get through 2020, the better. I'm SO ready for 2021!

To finish out the year at Let's Craft and Create, we've decided to honor that favorite guy about town--Santa Claus. Of course, you can choose the other option of Anything Goes if you prefer.

Here's what I have made for this fun challenge:

I stamped, colored and fussy-cut my little Christmas gnome, North Pole sign and tree. My gnome looks like one of Santa's elfin helpers, doesn't he? He even has a jingle bell tied at the end of his cap.

I created my little scene on a fish-tail banner. Before die-cutting the banner, I created some snowy texture using a snowfall embossing folder, and some snowy hills, using white glitter cardstock.

I stamped my sentiment and then cut it out with a scalloped oval die. The holly sprig was cut from some green cardstock to which I added red Nuvo Drops for the berries.

On the inside of my card I stamped the sentiment and added some of the same striped DSP as I had used on the front.

Now it's your turn. You probably have some Christmas cards in process that you could link to the challenge at Let's Craft and Create. If not, be sure to clink on the link to see what the Design Team has created to inspire you. I hope you'll join in.

Thanks so much for stopping by, and remember to laugh--a little or a lot--every day.

Really cute an fun card. Your gnome Santa is adorable. Great idea building the scene on a banner which really does look like it is snowing.

So, so cute, Cheryl! I love the stripes on each side - one of my favorite things that I rarely do. :) Everything goes together so perfectly.

Aww I love this Cheryl! Love your colours and your little gnome is fab! I have a gnome in my stash somewhere but rarely use him as I find it impossible to colour his beard - you've done a great job on yours!
