Christmas Digi - Birdie Brown

I found this digi called Happy Santa on Etsy in Birdie Brown's shop.  It is so cute, I had to have it.  I have a friend who collects Santa's.  Every year I make her a card with a Santa and every year it has to be a different Santa.  This may be the card that I send her.  Or maybe I will make another using one of the other Santa's in this set.  We will see.
I used Spellbinders Circle Nesties to cut the circles out of the card.  I used a larger one on the top layer with the trees then a slightly smaller one to cut through the blue layer and the base of the card (use removable tape to tape everything in place before cutting so that the layers don't move).  I attached a piece of acetate behind the blue layer before I adhered it to the card base.  I used foam squares to attach Santa, girl and conversation bubble.  The tree was cut out of a scrap of the tree paper and glued to the inside of the card base.
Supplies used:
Birdie Brown Happy Santa digital stamp
Patterned Paper - unknown
Spellbinders Circle Nesties (large & small sets)
Foam Squares

Christmas Cards

I saw this CARD and knew I had to CASE this card using the wisemen from the Hero Arts Heavens Rejoice set.  I did not have the full set to use, though; I had a teacher's set that Hero Arts sent to The Embellished Scrapbook Boutique so I had to use a different sentiment on the front of the card.  I used MFT Fishtail dies.  I used a Tim Holtz script stamp on the white fishtail.  The larger white is a glitter paper.  I had a request for 70 of these cards.  The same person also bought 70 of my nativity cards last year:
I used the Hero Arts Greatest Gift set for this card.  For the yellow, I used a piece of cardstock with a circle punched out and sponged CTMH Buttercup.
Supplies used:
Hero Arts Heavens Rejoice, Greatest Gift

Folded Christmas Tree

The scrapbook store that I work at (The Embellished Scrapbook Boutique) had their annual Christmas Card Round Robin event this past weekend.  The teachers make up card kits and our customers can go around the room and make as many of each card as they would like for $1.50 per card.  This year we had 29 different designs and about 20 kits of each one (click on the above link to see the cards).  This is one of the cards that I made for the event. 
I found the pattern on Splitcoaststampers.  You can find a tutorial HERE.  I just found this tutorial today.  It is a little different than how I did mine, but this will work for you.
