It is also being entered in the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge – Holiday Cards – where they are encouraging us to show them our homemade holiday goodness this week.

This card is also being entered in the Perfectly Rustics Design Challenge No. 37 – Sentiment (Not Birthday). The focus of this challenge is the sentiment on the card, but NO HAPPY BIRTHDAY sentiments are to be used in this challenge! They want us to think outside of the standard (most commonly used sentiment) and come up with something different. My card has “Merry Christmas” as the sentiment. (http://perfectlyrustics.com/2014/12/01/prdc-37-sentiment-not-birthday/)s made for my daughter’s drum teacher.
The Santa was cut using my Cricut and the “Jolly Holidays” cartridge. The drum set is from the “Quarter Note” cartridge. I used Gina K sandy beach and dark chocolate card stock for the card base and mats. The music notes printed paper is from the Recollections “Union Square” paper pad. The red and green printed paper is from my scrap box and I don’t remember who made it. (I got it at AC Moore a few years ago.) The metalic paper for the drum set is Recollections (bronze) shimmer card stock, and Santa was made with Gina K cranberry tart, ivory, sandy beach, and a hunter green from my scrap box. I stamped the Merry Christmas greeting on a scrap of the background green paper using a stamp from the Gina K Designs “Peace and Joy” set and charcoal brown ink.
I was pretty excited to make this card because I used a few Cricut cartridges that I haven’t used in a long time, and I also made use of some of the scraps that I keep and usually forget about!
Thanks for checking out my card project!
