Merry Monday #268 - Santa Hat

Hey everyone - there's still time to get a few more Christmas cards made for your stash so join us at Merry Monday! This week, Deanne would like to see a Santa Hat on your card for Challenge #268.


I found a fun digi cut in the Silhouette store - a large sentiment with a Santa hat on it by Erin Doran. Here's my card:

Supplies: Paper - American Crafts Christmas (plaid); Michael's green and red, 
Neenah Classic Crest Solar White
Digi cut - Silhouette Design ID #65244 "Season's Greetings"
Stamp - Hero Arts CL368 Create Your Own Snowman (holly) - retired
Other - 3M foam tape & glitter washi, Copic Markers, Glossy Accents, Stickles

I cut the sentiment and and an offset mat, making them so large I had to make this an A7 card! The plaid paper was only 6x6 so I added a strip of 1/2 inch washi on both sides to frame the sentiment and add some more sparkle. This would be an easy card to mass produce; in fact, I already have a pile of holly stamped, cut and colored - just need to cut some more sentiments, mats and hats.

Be sure to check this week's Merry Monday post for more inspiration from the fabulous Design Team and I hope you get a chance to play along with us!! Thanks for stopping!
