Santa's Sleigh - Retro Style!

I had fun creating this card with the new stamp set Santa's Sleigh from Stampin' Up's 2016 Holiday Catalog.  Oh what fun!  The beautiful matching framelits are artistically detailed and add so much to the dimension and beauty of the card. Santassleigh1

I used one of my favorite color combinations - Real Red, Pool Party and Whisper White.

Here's what you need for your basic card~

Card base: Pool Party, 5 1/2 x 8 1/2" scored at 4 1/4"

Base mat: Real Red, 5 1/4 x 4"

Art piece: Whisper White, 5 x 3 3/4"

Stamp the reindeer image on a piece of Pool Party and cut with the Big Shot.  Also cut out the sleigh base and detailed piece.  Cut the tree from Subtles tablet Pool Party dotted Pool Party Paper.  

The sentiment is from the Peaceful Pines stamp set.

Enjoy the retro style and colors!!


Superman's Birthday Card

My husband's birthday was this week.  I call him Superman - I don't know how he does all he does.  He is a Super man!

I made a simple country-style card for my Superman, who is also a farmer:


I used two Stampin' Up stamp sets - Country Livin' and Lovely as a Tree.  I stamped the pickup truck image first, and then stamped the tree images from Lovely as a Tree.  I made a paper mask the shape of the top of the truck image to stamp the trees in the background.  Almost forgot - the sentiment is from Guy Greetings.  Simple, but "classic."
