Stampin' Up! Be Jolly Santa Card featuring a Sketch Challenge!

Happy Monday! Last Wednesday, I gathered virtually with a group of demonstrators to stamp! We used Sketch #506 from Freshly Made Sketches as our inspiration, and today I wanted to share the card I made during that meeting!

Isn't that jolly ole Saint Nick so adorable? I love that he looks like he's dancing! I've included an image of the Sketch below, with a link back to the FMS website in case you'd like to take a peek through their other sketches!

Check out Freshly Made Sketches here. The Sketch is inspiration for your creating - but you can do so many creative things with it! I used the Sweet Stockings DSP as my stripes, and the Layering Circle dies for my focal point. For the sentiment, I wanted something skinny so I turned to the Bright Baubles set.

I love how the Pool Party and Cherry Cobbler mix together so well - and the Poppy Parade in Santa's suit! I also stamped a few of the star images behind the circle to give some extra interest.

Basic White Cardstock
  • (THICK) 8-1/2" x 5-1/2" scored in half at 4-1/4"
  • Two (2) pieces at 5-1/4" x 4" (one for the inside of the card)
  • ~2-3/4" x 2-3/4" to die cut the Circle

Pool Party Cardstock
  • ~2-3/4" x 2-3/4" to die cut the Scalloped Circle

Cherry Cobbler Cardstock
  • Small strip for Sentiment

Sweet Stockings DSP
  • Two (2) strips cut at 1/2" (any length)
  • One strip cut at 3/4" (any length)

I had so much fun with this Sketch challenge and will be back to do many more with Freshly Made Sketches! I hope the sketch inspired your crafting, too!
