Trio of Claus and Co. Christmas Cards

Using Simple Stories "Claus and Co." decorator paper for a trio of cards today:

The first design features jolly ole St. Nick...the Simple Stories paper pad has numerous image and sentiment panels that can be cut to decorate any paper craft project...nice and easy! 

I decided to accent this design using Spellbinder's Die D-Lites "Holly Twigs and Leaves" die along with Simple Stories "Claus and Co." Enamel dots  (perfect color match for the prints in the dp pad!) for holly berries. Red chunky glitter (similar: Tim Holtz Distress Glitter in Festive Berries) adds a touch around the popped up Santa panel (Thermoweb 3D Foam Strips).

The second design for today using "Claus and Co."

This design has more of a vintage feel. Stars go perfectly with Christmas designs as we remember the star which led the wise men to the Christ child. This star was made with three of Spellbinders "Stars Five" dies.  I used a bit of Tim Holtz Distressed "Tea Dye" ink to distress the edges of the stars and card and added a Gold Glitter Assorted Jingle Bell and May Art's Burlap String.

The stars are layered onto a card base covered with the Claus and Co. decorator paper print of "Jingle Bells." That tune hearkens back to happy childhood memories...along with the candy cane stripes in the paper. I wanted to add the word "Christmas" onto the card, and used JustRite's Small Cling Vintage Christmas Labels Two and Versafine Onyx Black Ink.

My final Claus and Co. design uses Spellbinder's Die D-Lite Holly Wreath die. 

The sentiment is JustRite's Clear "Gift of Faith Sentiments" stamped with the Versafine Onyx Black ink.  The sentiment is popped up with a bit of foam tape on each end. 

All linked product is from The Stamp Simply Ribbon Store.

I hope that you have enjoyed these three cards today; have a wonderful weekend!
