It’s a Scrappy Christmas- Day 8

Hi friends! I’m back again for day 8 of my scrappy holiday card series here on my blog. From now until Christmas I hope to share as many cards as I can that I made at a scrapbook retreat in January with leftover scraps from two of my favorite Christmas collections, I Love Christmas by Echo Park and Dear Santa by Photo Play Paper. Today’s card features another jolly Santa, but this time from the Photo Play line.


This card uses a good mix of both collections, and has a bit of that old world feel that I love so well. The Santa image and the holly round are stickers from the Dear Santa Alpha sticker sheet. The sentiment is from that journaling prompt paper that is a card-making challenge on it’s own, but works so well when cut into pieces. There’s a bit of a border sticker from the Echo Park line, and I added dotted paper and a red solid from that collection to match, too.


I used both of the punches I brought along to the retreat, and made a frame from the circle die set to help set off the smaller Santa sticker. Wrapped the card in twine, and added one of those random buttons that was loose in the enamel dots. Then brown Distress ink around all the elements adds that vintage look and finishes off this design.

Christmas is inching ever closer! Less than a week now to go, and still lots of cards left to share. Should have started this a long time ago!
