Sassy Santa

If you read my blog regularly then you know I love to get a head start on Christmas cards and today I have one featuring one of Sassy Cheryl's wonderful Santas.  This one is called Delivery Boy Santa and I am not sure if it is still available from the Sassy Cheryl's store but if it isn't be sure to check out her other wonderful images.

I made the card blank from some Staples card stock and the papers are all scraps from my stash. The image was cut with the Spellbinders Label One Nestabilities die, coloured with Prismacolors that were blended with Gotrick OMS and then I added some Mungyo chalk to the edges.

I found the ribbon a while back in a bag from White Rose but since they closed their doors 10 years ago, you know how old it is.  I pulled the centre thread to ruffle it and then added a charm from Arton Beads.  The little buttons are from Dress It Up.

I am going to enter this card in the following challenges:

Christmas Stampin All Year Long - Santa's Coat
C.R.A.F.T. Challenge - Christmas
Forever Friends - Die Cuts/Punches
Digistamps4joy - Anything Goes
Sassy Cheryl's - Anything Goes


  1. Your card is just wonderful. I have always loved that Santa and his presents. I saw your creation over at Sassy Cheryl's and had to come and have a closer look. Just beautiful...joann sassy raggedy

    P.S. I have candy on my blog if you are interested.
