Stampin’ Up! Santa’s List Stamp Set was a favorite of many. This Santa’s List Christmas card was my absolute favorite of all of them received during the swap. What put this handmade Christmas card over the top was coupling it with the Stampin’ Up! Post Card Stamp. Do they not look like they were made for each other?
Speaking of made for each other, the 2 cent stamp in the upper right corner is from the Stampin’ Up! Postage Due Stamp Set. The artist stamped right over Place Stamp Here. Just following directions. 🙂 With the Basic Black Classic Stampin’ Pad ink, you need to look to see the Place Stamp Here underneath.
Last week I showed you a Christmas card with the Postcard and Festive Flurry Stamp Set. If you missed it, you will want to see it too.
And while there getting the Santa’s List Stamp Set, remember to also order the Stampin’ Up! Post Card Stamp. We have seen two beautiful hand made Christmas cards made with it. Just think of all the other kinds of cards you could make with it too. This stamp is getting added to my list.
My girlfriend picked the Stampin’ Up! Santa’s List Stamp Set for this year’s Christmas cards. I came home from Founder’s Circle with quite a few card ideas for her. This one was her favorite.
She then decided she’d love the card even more if the metal was in warm gold instead of cool silver with the Crumb Cake Card Stock. Easy enough to do.
We replaced the Antique Brad with Linen Thread because it is a brushed metal and the Gold Foil Sheets are shiny. This also worked well because it made her handmade Christmas cards more economical. Hard to beat looking good at a less expensive price. 🙂
She liked it better but the card was not just the look she wanted. The gold looked new against the vintage look of the Crumb Cake Card Stock, especially with the sponging around it. So, I gave her another option.
Remember the Brushed Gold Card Stock? Just one more small touch.
Sponged onto the Brushed Gold Card Stock is a little Tim Holtz Distress Ink. She was pleased. We had settled on what her Christmas card design would be for this year.
The original Santa’s List card was her favorite of the about 10 from the swap. If you prefer the original over the makeover card, you will find all the stamping supplies listed below so you can make it like the original artist. The supplies are available to order in my online store www.shopwithshelly.com.
Just below this list, you will find the alternate projects for the makeover Christmas card.

“He’s making a list and checking it twice . . . ” is one of the greetings from the new Stampin’ Up! Santa’s List stamp set. Stampin’ Up! will certainly be on his nice list. They keep bringing wonderful new stampin’ toys to us throughout the year. The Santa’s List stamp set is just one of many.
Santa’s coat is so detailed that it looked almost solid black when I stamped it. I was seriously considering just giving him a wash in Crumb Cake Classic Stampin’ Pad ink and calling it vintage. Before I knew it, I was watercoloring his coat in Cherry Cobbler Classic Stampin’ Pad ink (the striped designer paper had already been picked out before I started). As you can see in the picture, the black was easily colored. At least with a dark like Cherry Cobbler.
The shading on his beard, cuffs on his and trim on his hat were down with Crumb Cake Classic Stampin’ Pad ink. His list with Soft Suede. Crumb cake would have been my first choice, actually it was, but it did not have any contrast against the trim of his coat. His face with Blushing Bride.
The bit of decoration added is Crumb Cake Card Stock die-cut with the new Stampin’ Up! Deco Labels Collection Framelits. Just a bit of it peeking out from behind. Like a child trying to get a peek at Santa putting gifts under the tree.
The touch of ribbon is a small piece of the limited-edition 1″ Cherry Cobbler Stitched Edge Grosgrain Ribbon from the Holiday Catalog.
The Cherry Cobbler striped paper is from the Stampin’ Up! Season of Style Designer Series Paper. It looks like candy cane stripes. How fitting for Santa Claus.
Lower in the post I will list the stamping products for this handmade Christmas card.
