Ho Ho Ho! Santa Cards!

The photos aren't the best again! These are so cute, and I'm so happy with them, but they didn't photograph well. It's rainy and gloomy, and I had a hard time getting a good pic. Anyway, more cards for the craft fair. I've made snowmen, reindeer, snowflakes, etc. I really needed a Santa card! I was looking at my QuicKutz Santa die and the Cricut options for Santa, and none of them were doing it for me. So, I decided to check out clip art, and I fell in love with these vintage/retro Santas that I found!


I used a scallop circle that I cut using Mini Monograms on my Cricut. I used my Coluzzle to cut Santa. The sentiment was printed on my computer, and the photo corners are QuicKutz. The card front is Cuttlebug embossed and ticket punched. I rubbed green ink on the embossed card front. The scallop and the photo corners were cut from DCWV Christmas Stack paper. It's gorgeous paper!


As always, I made four of them. Good thing there were four Santas to choose from in clip art, because I like each card to be a little bit different! These are so much cuter in person. Really, the photograph is bad! What do you think? I love the retro feeling these have! I can't believe I made cards that don't have ribbon, Primas, rhinestones, or Stickles!

Thanks for stopping by!

They are brilliant, I love using that embossing folder too.You mentioned struggling with your photos, I find it helps if you use a tripod or rest you camera on a solid surface to stop it jerking as you press the button, it really gives you a sharper picture.
