8/27 Color Me Christmas, Oh, Goodie and Season of Style

Good Afternoon Friends! 

When I was a kid, I wasn't big on coloring, but there's something about the little Santa from Color Me Christmas that could keep the 40 year old me happy as a clam for days on end! 

The measurements on this one are easy peasy!  You can make a WHOLE BUNCH using the new season of style Designer Series Paper Packs, because they are sized for making cards quickly!

Here's a peek at the 4 designs that come sized 4 1/2 x 6 1/2", perfect for cutting and layering.

Isn't he dreamy? 

Base: Cherry cobbler card stock, 11 x 4 1/4", scored and folded in half at 5 1/2"
Layer 2: Cherry Cobbler Striped DSP, (from the paper stack) 4 1/4 x 1"
Layer 3: Dot pattern from the same DSP pack, (from the paper stack) 4 1/4 x 3/4"
Layer 4:  Old olive card stock, 3 1/4" x 3" (popped up on dimensionals)
Layer 5: Whisper white card stock 3 x 2 3/4", stamped with the Color Me Christmas and Oh, Goodie Stamp sets!

I straight colored the images with cherry cobbler, blushing bride and basic black markers. Oh and my favorite part!!  Notice the candy dot SELF ADHESIVE buttons and the white button on his hat?  I used glitter on top of the white button, and the great new permanent white chalk marker on top of the candy dots to make the accent on his buttons!  {singing} Awwweeeesome, Right?

To finish it off, I just added a little 2-way glue and dazzling diamonds glitter to the trim of his suit.  Ho ho ho, merry!

Don't forget to order envelopes if you need them!  Ours are better and less expensive!  Just sayin'!

Thanks for popping by today!  I hope you feel inspired to go stamp something fun!
