Ho! Ho! Ho!

At Jingle Belles they're celebrating embossing... dry embossing, heat embossing, or even textured or embossed papers ... whatever you can do to add a little texture to your holiday project.

I love using embossing folders so this was right up my alley!

Another borrowed stamp here.  Our Scrap and Share group worked on Christmas cards last Saturday.  I love this Santa that Barbara brought!

I used a Sizzix embossing folder that looks a bit like Santa's beard.

The sentiment is from the Jolly Jingles Jumbo Wheel that I whacked up.

A super quick and easy card.

All supplies are Stampin' Up! Unless otherwise noted

Card Recipe
Stamps:  Santa (unknown origin), Jolly Jingles Jumbo Wheel
Ink:  Jet Black StazOn, SU Marker (Real Red, Garden Green)
Paper:  Whisper White, Garden Green
Other:  Sizzix EF, Ticket Corner Punch

We've had a good rain today.  A good day for the boys to take long naps so Nana could stamp.

I'm so glad you stopped by.  Thanks so much for your lovely comments.

What a jolly ol' Santa....such a cute, happy Christmas card. You're right, the embossing folder does remind one of Santa's beard.

I'm glad you said that you thought the embossing folder looks like Santa's beard, 'cause that's EXACTLY what I was thinking too! IT looks fabulous with this merry face.
