Just Add Ink Challenge # 194 - Santa

Hello Everyone,

How fitting is it that the Just Add Ink challenge is to add Santa to your entry.  This is my very last Christmas Card this year I promise. I really need to get my cards in the post.  I've only sent a handful so far and they were the ones travelling overseas and interstate.
JAI 194

I've decided to make an Easel Card this time and have used a retired stamp set called Jolly Old Saint Nick.  He really is a Jolly looking fellow, so cute, coloured with blender pens and markers.  On my embossed background I've used Season of Style Washi tape along the lines made by the Stylish Stripes embossing folder.   Here is my entry.


 The greeting is from the set called Christmas Messages from the current Holiday Catalogue which has been cut out with the Deco Label framelits.  Santa is sitting on circles cut with the Circles Collection Framelits.  Here is a closer look.

Very traditional colours here as I wanted to use my Season of Style Washi tape on this card.  Here's the side view of the easel, below.

Thanks so much for taking a peek at my card today.  Hope you will let me know what you think of my Jolly card.  Merry Christmas, to you and yours and especially to the Just Add Ink girls who run these fabulous challenges.

  1. What a lovely card, Carolyn. I really like the technique of using washi tape lined up with the embossed lines. The Santa mounted on silver glimmer paper looks fabulous. Thanks for playing along with us at Just Add Ink this week!
