A Vintage Father Christmas

Stampin Up AverysOwlery.com Father Christmas

I like a square card every once in a while.  I saw this design on Pinterest and recreated it.  I’ve been making a lot of cards lately but not so many of my own ‘original’ design which was one of the reasons why I wasn’t posting very frequently.  But I had a talk with myself and realized that I don’t have to only post original creations.  There is so much out there on the internet these days, the likelihood that any of my wonderful followers have seen it before is slim, nor do they likely care if I cased it from someone else, as two of my followers were nice enough to point out.  So I’m recommitting to posting on a regular basis and I’m not going to worry if I’ve cased it from the internet, or from the SU catalog.  I’m just going to share for sharing sake.  Thanks for sticking around with me through my self-evaluation.


I like a square card every once in a while and this Father Christmas card was very quick once I figured out what size to make the very vanilla piece on the front. (4-1/4 x 4-1/4 is the answer).  The DSP from Presents and Pinecodes layer is 5×5 and the Tip Top Taupe cardbase is 5-1/4 x 10-1/2 scored at 5-1/4.  I stamped everything in Soft Suede and sponged the edges.  I used a needle to thread the bakers twine through the jingle bells. This would not make for a great card to mail but would be perfect for handing to someone special, or putting in someone Christmas Stocking.

  1. Beautiful card, Lynn. CASEing (Copy and Share Everything) is not a bad thing. I think we all do it from time to time changing the paper to what’s in our stash. etc. You are right that we like to see your cards whether they are CASEd from another or your original work. I think you are being too hard on yourself. Take a few deep breaths and have a wonderful day.
