In my last 2 blogs I’ve shown you simple cards using the amazing Santa’s Workshop speciality designer series paper. Today I’ve got some more for you that required a bit more equipment…
This one shows how you can use framelits or a large punch to cut out one of the images from the paper as a focal point for your card. I used the large oval from the Stitched Shapes framelit dies to cut out Santa and the elves.
My card base is Whisper White measuring 21 x 14.5 cm, scored and folded on the long side at 10.5 cm. I added some Poppy Parade card measuring 10 x 14 cm and then the elves paper cut to 13.5 x 9.5 cm. I then added a narrow strip of the dotty paper and finally my oval feature and a few enamel shapes.
Next I used a punch to step up this card instead of framelits
The designer series paper is still the main focus on this card and I just added a strip of one of the other patterns from the pack as a contrast and a punched sentiment. The sentiment comes from the Peaceful Noel stamp set and is in Garden Green ink on Whisper White card. I used the Pretty Label Punch to cut it out. I used the punch on Garden Green card too then cut it in half horizontally then glued each half to the back of my sentiment so a small edge shows.
Although these cards use dies and punches they’re still quite easy to make and look really cute!
I hope you’ve enjoyed this little series of cards using the Santa’s Workshop speciality designer series paper. I’ve enjoyed making them and might do more later.
