Dear Santa

Hi guys

I'm here tonight to share a card I've made this evening for the current challenge at CASology where the cue word is 'letter'.

The idea I had in my head hasn't really translated as I wanted it to, but I thought I'd share my card anyway.




I've had these mini cards and envelopes in my stash for years but have hardly ever used them.  With these in mind I immediately thought of a Dear Santa letter.  I used an embossing marker to write the text, trying to make it look like a child had written it (not too difficult when you can't see where you're writing!!), and then heat embossed this with some red embossing tinsel.  I stamped some silver snowflakes on the card base to add some interest.

Materials used:

  • Stamp: Uniko Studio - Stunning Snowflakes
  • Ink: Versa Color - Silver
  • Embossing Pen: Whispers Embossing Marker
  • Embossing Powder: Heat It Up - Embossing Tinsel (Red)
  • Cardstock and mini card and envelope from stash

Really quick post tonight as I'm now off to bed.

Bye for now

  5. Hi Anita, I think your card is really cute actually, but, maybe more sophisticated with a kraft envelope and linen look paper?? Glad to see you sharing a card that hasn't gone quite to plan, have you seen my crafty confessions series this week?? Rebecca x x x

    1. Perhaps putting an idea into practice at 11pm wasn't such a good idea either! :) Looking at it again today I really don't like it! I've seen your posts popping up but not had a chance to look properly and comment yet, I'll pop by shortly xx
