Holly Jolly Christmas - OCC Sketch Challenge

Hi Everyone! I originally posted this card on my Stampin Inspirations Club site but I'm reposting it here because I decided to play along with a sketch challenge!

Which sketch challenge? Well. . .the sketch challenge at Our Creative Corner. Why don't you guys participate. . .there's a prize to be given out. I'm not motivated by the prize because quite honestly, I rarely win anything! LOL! I just really liked the sketch!

I rarely participate in challenges but lately I've been wanting to do some and I've been enjoying it. I think I'll continue to play more!

Anyway. . .I created this card using the Stampin Up "Holly, Jolly Christmas" set. To create the Santa image as shown in the picture, I added the instructions below.

  • Stamp the Santa image twice. One with black ink and the other with the "Real Red" ink.
  • With the red colored image, cut out Santa's cap and coat.
  • Mount over the black colored image, using foam tape or SU Dimensionals.
  • To create the puffy beard, add "Liquid Applique" (you find it in the fabric paint section of your local craft store) to the image.
  • Heat emboss the Liquid Applique to create the "puffy" look.

Anyway, I hope y'all a wonderful time this holiday season.
