Santa's Suit Jolly Christmas Washing Line Card

by Joanne James23. September 2017 19:30

It's the weekend at last! Today I'm sharing a card that I inadvertently posted yesterday before I had time to complete my write-up - oops! So here it is today with all the details. This card uses one of my personal favourites from the seasonal catalogue - Santa's Suit. Take a look:

 

Here's the low-down on today's card:

A Festive Clothes Line - Today's card features the sweetest ever washing line! Mrs Claus has been doing the laundry and Santa's all-important suit is air-drying ready for the big day - how adorable are all those little bits and pieces?! You could easily stamp this set as one layer directly below the washing line, but I chose to stamp mine and cut them out with the co-ordinating Santa Builder Framelits for a little extra definition. As for the little pegs - fiddly, yes, but so worth it!

Jolly Christmas Banner - I kept with a red, black and white colour scheme for my card today with just a little pop of Emerald Envy green for Santa's braces and my sentiment banner, that I cut out and layered with my Triple Banner Punch and hung amongst the washing on the line. 

Merry Little Christmas Gingham - The washing line is really the star of the show on today's card, however rather than layer directly onto my Real Red card base, I added a mat of the black-and white gingham pattern from the Merry Little Christmas set. It adds a modern, almost graphic element to the card which I love. Note how I centred the pattern on this panel too so that the border is equal all the way around the main image. Sometimes it's the little things that make the difference :-)

Here is the visual summary of the key products used on today's project for you to pin for easy reference:

Enjoy your evening and I'll be back tomorrow with another project for this week's new challenge over at The Paper Players. Until then, happy stampin'!

This is such a cute idea...   I was wondering what the size of the card is?  (The white & red cardstock)
Thank you for sharing your wonderful creativity
