Hello Stamping Friends!
Okay – when I say 'Santa's Big Day', I'm not talking about Christmas! Not yet, anyway. We have a wonderful friend (my husband has known him since, it seems like forever), and Harley IS Santa – at least, he is at this time of the year! The rest of the year, he's a really nice guy who happens to look a lot like a certain someone, who lives in the North Pole!
So anyway, Harley's birthday was on the 20th, and my husband asked me if I could make a card for Harley – "a nice, big Santa" – he said. Well, yes, I could! And did!
How do you like it?
I got the idea for this card from another talented demo named Joyce Whitman in Ohio (www.joycewhitman.stampinup.net) I changed a couple of things, but hey – Santa is Santa, right? 🙂
I used card stocks in Real Red, Whisper White, and Blushing Bride; the Perfect Dots Embossing Folder; Bird Builder Punch (mustache), Boho Blossoms Punch (ball on hat), 1" Circle Punch (mouth) and 1/2" Circle Punch (eyes).
I punched the 'HO HO HO' (Oh Goodie stamp set #131889 $10.95cm/#131885 $13.95wm) with the Modern Label Punch (#119849 $22.95). I added the Festive Flurries snowflake embellishment onto Santa's hat, just for a little bling.
I'm really pleased with how this card turned out; and it turned out that Harley liked it, too!
Well, it's getting down to crunch time now; I have a few more presents to wrap, some house cleaning to finish up, and preparation for the family coming over for dinner on the 25th!
I hope that you have a very Merry Christmas, however you choose to celebrate, and wish you all the best for a Happy New Year!
See you after Christmas! Until then – HO HO HO!! 🙂
