Santa’s Delivery

How cute is the Santa’s Delivery stamp set and coordinating Santa’s Train die set? I wasn’t exactly sure how I would use these products but knew they were just too cute to pass up. I’ve got two versions using this set for you today, one more labor intensive than the other but both are great additions to my holiday card stash.

Santa’s Delivery Slimline

My Santa’s Deliver slimline (9-1/4 x 7 scored at 3-1/2) takes best advantage of the coordinating Santa Express Designer Series Paper that can be cut with the dies as well. I selected two of the carriages and one of the engine images and cut away. The background paper is also from this DSP pack trimmed to 8-3/4 x 3 and layered over a piece of white cut to 9 x 3-1/4.

Very little stamping was needed for my card with all the detail really coming from the DSP. I stamped the tree using Shaded Spruce ink on Shaded spruce cardstock and Merry Christmas sentiment on Parakeet Party cardstock. I used the die from Splendid stems to cut it out.

My favorite bit about this card though is the puffed snowfall accents used on the steam and tops of all the carriages. It really adds fun texture to the card.

Santa’s Delivery with Stampin’ Blends

As I mentioned above, this card was a bit more labor intensive especially if you do not like to color. I stamped both the carriage and engine images on white cardstock and then had fun coloring with stampin’ Blends. The full list of colors is below. I layered this over a piece of the Santas Express DSP all on a Parakeet Party (although it, unfortunately, looks more yellow in this picture than in real life) card base. For a bit of fun I used the snowfall puff paint on Santa’s beard.

Of the two cards I like the slimline better, but I’m going to practice with the stamped images some more and will share in the future.
