This card is an alternate version of this card that I made awhile back after finding an awesome stash of Christmas Playing cards at a yard sale!!! What a score! Doesn't this playing card Santa make for a fab focal point?
My son has me in the mood to make Christmas cards - he LOVES Christmas and has been playing Christmas tunes for the last few days even though it is summer time here! Gotta love that boy!
I have managed to incorporate a number of challenges with this one! I rarely combine more than two, but here it goes:
Christmas Card Challenges - Think tags
Inky Chicks - Christmas in July
Shopping Our Stash - "Wooden Boats" - use wood/wood veneer OR boats
Jingle Belles / SOS - special challenge to make a Christmas card using stash at least one year old - some of this stuff is WAY older than that, lol! I think the gingham ribbon has been in my stash for 10 years!
Winter Wonderland - dots & stripes - there are lots of stripes on the inside of my card which I neglected to photograph (will try to edit tomorrow) but there are technically stripes on the corrugated heart I made with recycled Starbuck's sleeves.
Whew! I think that covers it.
Thanks so much for stopping by!
What I used:
papers - Bo Bunny "Rejoice"
map stamp - SU
re-purposed playing card (the Santa image)
recycled Starbuck's coffee sleeve (heart)
