December Santa Greeting Card

Standard

Hello there friends and Authentique Paper fans! Ginny here dropping in with a fun and festive Christmas greeting card created with the gorgeous A Magical Christmas Collection.

I’ve always thought of this style of Santa image to be a Coca Cola Santa. I guess that shows my age.  The commercials I watched as a kid always featured this traditional style.

The image comes from one of the 3 x 4 inch cut apart cards. I used a circle die to give it a more unique shape and to make it a better scale for this card.

I had loads of fun mixing and matching the patterned papers. I’ve included a solid red border between the layers to keep it from looking too busy.

Here’s an arrangement of made by me flowers that coordinate perfectly with the collection. I’ve also added a strip of crocheted lace and evergreen trim for texture.

This corner has a sweet little bow, vintage button, and holiday charms. Last but not least a banner die cut from the collection paper.

  1. I, too, have special appreciation for the quintessential Coca Cola Santa images…in fact, every Santa image I see gets compared to the CC Santa! I recently purchased beautiful Santa stamps that brought the CC Santa to mind. Love your card…the candy cane strip paper is so festive and draws my eyes immediately…nice frame around this card. Well done!
