Happy Little Stampers CAS: Christmas Characters

It's time for the last CAS challenge of 2021 at Happy Little Stampers! For December, we are looking for clean and simple cards featuring Christmas Characters. 🦌 🧸 🐧  For my character, I used that iconic jolly old elf himself: 

That's right, it's Santa! I have lots of Santa stamps, but for this card decided to use this sweet die cut. Sometimes I colour his face and give him rosy cheeks and nose, but for this card just gave him his classic red hat and a little circle of felt for the pompom. I added texture to the main panel with a cover plate, and matched Santa's hat with a red sentiment banner embossed in white. Quick and easy to put together, but still a lot of fun. 
With gold glasses and red as my colour, I am adding my Santa to the CAS challenge at STAMPlorations as well as the Wednesday Happy Holidays/Christmas challenge at Simon Says Stamp

The HLS design team's cards always have lots of character, but now there are characters, too! Check out the inspiration, and then I hope you'll join us! 

Supplies: Neenah white, Stampin' Up real red & Sizzix gold foil cardstock, Simon Says Stamp Coolest Yulest stamp, Versamark, Wow white embossing powder, A Jillian Vance Design Santa and Friends dies, CUTplorations circles all over texture cover plate, foam tape

Pin It Now!

Super cute Santa, love the look of the cover plate layer, love the coverplate layer really adds interest. I might be able to handle this CAS type.

So CAS but still so much to take in on your design. Love all the elements, especially the texture plate and his gold glasses! Thanks for playing with us this month at STAMPlorations CAS Cards!
