Jolly Fun Christmas Cards and NEW Holiday Mini Collection

Pssst… have you seen the new Holiday Mini Catalog??  Everyone whom I share it with has one word to say “WOW!!”  It’s packed with fabulous new stamps, paper, ink, FABRIC, embossing folders, Sizzix Dies and MORE!!  You can download the complete  43 page Holiday Mini Catalog simply by clicking HERE, and choosing the Holiday Mini Icon!  I just know you’re going to love it!


Today I’m sharing two cards made with a stamp set from the Holiday Mini Catalog:  Jolly Old Saint Nick.  I couldn’t resist the roly poly images of both Santa and Snowman… The images are easy to color, and a little touch of Dazzling Diamonds can go far too!

Here I’ve used Stampin Write Markers to color Santa’s Hat, and outline his facial features, hair and whiskers.  The image really pops with a touch of Dazzling Diamonds, don’t you think?  The Designer Series Paper behind Santa is called Jolly Holiday and can be found in the 2010/11 Idea Book & Catalog on page 174… lots of fun patterns and colors!P8310033

This is the cutest little roly poly snowman!  He is also in the Jolly Old St. Nick Stamp set… I’ve embossed the background with the Northern Flurry Textured Embossing Folder (page 26 of the Holiday Mini Catalog)… and added a few Basic Jewel Rhinestones to the centers of the snowflakes.


After I took the photo of this card, I realized I hadn’t colored in his mits…  and finished coloring his top hat as well!  It’s amazing what you see in a photo but never even realize when you’re making a card, isn’t it?   The Card Club ladies really enjoyed making this card as well… it went together very easily and is very duplicatable… just what they were looking for!

There is also another image in the Jolly Old St. Nick Stamp Set, which I posted in yesterday’s DCBD# 192 Challenge Card HERE…  if you want to see him.. sure is a fun ‘old Christmas’ set!
