Merry Christmas

I'm still on a clean and simple kick (and loving it) and when I saw this week's Unscripted Sketch #197 I knew I could do something with it. I didn't quite know exactly what until I printed the sketch and put it down on my stamp table. But I put it down upside down by mistake, and when I looked at it again I immediately saw a belt along the bottom. And who has the most famous belt of all? That would be the jolly man with the most famous reindeer of all.  :-)

This Santa themed card was super quick and easy to create with supplies from My Favorite Things. I started with a card base of Sweet Tooth then cut a layer of Wild Cherry. Next I created the buckle using my Square 1 STAX Die-namics. I used the two smallest sizes to cut out the silver square, then I trimmed a strip of Black Licorice cardstock to the proper width for the belt.

The sentiment is from the Christmas Ornaments stamp set and I stamped it using Black Licorice Premium Dye Ink. I mounted the red panel on foam tape for a little dimension.

On the inside I kept it simple by stamping a sentiment from Clearly Sentimental about Christmas.

This is card #3 for Project Christmas 2013, and I may even think about whipping up a few more of these since it was super quick and it's nice and flat for mailing...bonus!

Here are the supplies I used:
