Merry Christmas

Hey everybody! I hope you’re having a fantastic week! I’m stoked to be back with another Keep It Simple DT inspiration project to share today! This adorable disappearing nine patch Christmas card features quite a few items from the Scandinavian Christmas collection! I used the Santa & Friends Stamps and Dies, a variety of patterned papers from both the 6×9 Collection Pack and 6×9 Cardstock Pack, and inside sentiments from the Congratulations Sentiments Stamp Set and Gnome Stamps.

I cut a standard A2 size top-folding card base from Neenah Classic Crest 110# Solar White cardstock along with layering panels cut from papers in the 6×9 Cardstock Pack and 80# Solar white cardstock. I created the disappearing nine patch panel using a variety of patterned papers in the 6×9 Collection Pack. I stamped the reindeer from the Santa & Friends Stamps (in Memento Rich Cocoa ink) on brown paper in the 6×9 Cardstock Pack and cut it with the coordinating Outline Die. I colored his spots and antlers with an alcohol marker and added a dot of Nuvo Autumn Red Crystal Drops on his nose. I die cut three more reindeer shapes and adhered them all together with the brown one on top, ran a brown alcohol marker around the edge of the stack, and added a twine bow around his neck. I stamped a sentiment from the Santa & Friends Stamps in Memento Rich Cocoa ink and added several snowflakes cut from a scrap of patterned paper used in the disappearing nine patch panel.

I cut the inside panel from 80# Solar White cardstock and embellished it with strips of two of the papers used on the front and a couple more snowflakes cut from a scrap of patterned paper used in the disappearing nine patch panel. I stamped the sentiment in brown ink using stamps from the Congratulations Sentiments Stamp Set and Gnomes Stamps.

I'm definitely what one could consider a crafting junkie! I love making cards, 3-D projects (especially paper shoes, mini albums and gift bags), mixed media projects, altering items, as well as occasional beading and making jewelry! Fortunately, hubby is very supportive! Life is good! :D
