Jolly Hat Christmas 

Hello!

I love the card I’m showing you today but it came about by accident. Last week I held a couple of stamp-a-stack classes and one of the designs was two Santa hats punched out if glimmer paper, with a sentiment, all in a row. When I was demonstrating the card I managed to splodge ink on the card, so I couldn’t complete the design as planned. I ended up with one hat and the sentiment offset on one side of the card. And I really liked it. A lot. More than my original design!  So here it is:

The base is thick Whisper White and the Santa hat is made out of glimmer paper. The best glue here is glue dots. I rolled them up to make them smaller. Stampin’ Up! have a wonderful range of glues and they have different strengths. Glue dots are pretty much the only thing that will stick glimmer paper, as far as I know. The sentiment from Greetings from Santa is stamped in Real Red. And that’s it!  Simple but elegant, I thought. And a good card to mass produce.

I’m entering this card in the current Casology challenge – the cue word is “Space”.

Hope you like it!  See you on Tuesday.

  1. Caroline, that sentiment is perfect for your sparkly Santa hat! The white space on your card screams winter and snow 🙂 Thanks for sharing with us at CASology this week!
