Santa Stationery Revisited

Thanks for joining me today for the December Papertrey Ink Senior DT Challenge. This time around we are bringing back Santa Stationery
Quick and easy is the theme for my projects today.  Since Christmas will be here before we know it, we all can use some ideas for the kids that can be executed in not time flat.  
 Here's a fun little Santa ensemble using today's featured stamp set.
First up, the official nice list declaration. The base of this declaration was die cut from pattern paper using the Card Base-ics #2 die.  I trimmed a cardstock panel to fit on top measuring 4 3/4" by 3 1/2" allowing a bit of the pattern paper to show as a border.  This is sized perfectly to fit into a basic A2 (typical card sized) envelope. 
Santa was stamped first in pure poppy and then the wording in true black over him.  The Type Strips are a fun way to include the child's name and a golden Sketched Star makes for a sweet shimmering touch.  These embellishments aren't necessary but they add a fun touch.
Can't forget about the coordinating gift tag!  This one was created using the Folded Foodie Tag die.  Santa's cheerful face was stamped over the edge and topped with a die cut "joy".  Then tied with bakers twine and embellished with a star rhinestone. Easy peasy!
For an added special touch... the inside was personalized.

Well, that's it from me today. Hope you enjoy this month feature! Now be sure to visit the other Papertrey Ink senior design team girls for more Santa Stationery goodness...

  1. Love the "certificate" Maile! And the naughty/nice check list on the back of the tag was adorable!

  2. I pulled out my Santa's stationery stamp set last week and made naughty or nice certificates(all nice!) for the third year for all the children in my family. It is one of favorite new traditions. My granddaughter has already asked her Dad when they were coming:) Thanks Maile for your beautiful versions. I have pinned them for inspiration for next year!
