Jolly Old St. Nick! (JB20)



Hi there! I wanted to get this post done (quickly!) as my kids will be home soon and I still have a TON of stuff to get done, LOL. But when I saw the prompt this week over at Jingle Belles, I knew I wanted to submit this card (yet another Paper Crafts reject, so it was all made, and all I had to do was the post!) I LOVE this stamp, and the prompt this week is the fat man in the red suit himself (or, in my case, in the purple hat!) I tried to do non-traditional colors on this card, hence the purple, brown and green. This is one of my fave Christmas stamps ever, I just love this vintage look Santa :) Here is one of my fave Christmas cards from last year, created with the same stamp. I made a star bow and did some punching and stamping for the center of that bow as an accent, all in all, a fun card, I hope you like it, too! :)  Have a wonderful weekend!

Hi Noelle, such a fun Santa! Such a lovely card. I am rather tired from having to rewrite all the comments that google deleted! Have a great weekend.

This card is certainly not a reject. I love the vintage Santa and the star bow with all of the treatments is just perfect.

Definitely an unexpected color combo for a Christmas card. I like it! :)

I love purple Santa! My previous hobby was painting pecan resin Santas, and I have a purple Santa, and pink, and blue paisley…not just red suit Santa :) Fabulous!
