Naughty or Nice?

to view the image up-close, please click on the photo
To celebrate the holidays with my fellow Baker's Dozen design teammates, we all made Christmas cards and mine uses the adorable Santa image from Take Note-Holidays from Taylored Expressions. I was inspired by the idea of Santa's list that he's checkin twice! My own name is on there, and I hope it doesn't fall into the 'naughty' side. May all of your holidays be merry and bright!

SPILLING THE BEANS
  1. Make card from cardstock.
  2. Print names on cardstock; trim into strips. Trim patterned and textured cardstock into strips. Assemble together and adhere to cardstock backing. Die cut.
  3. Te ribbon on die cut. Adhere to card.
  4. Stamp sentiment.
  5. Stamp Santa; color with markers. Fussy cut and adhere with foam tape.
