I had a hard time capturing how gorgeous this card is! The white is Shimmery White Cardstock. It has a subtle glitter to it. But you can still stamp full images on it. AND Frosted Florals Specialty Designer Paper has a pearl gloss..another GORGEOUS paper that goes past the holidays and into other winter cards.

Santa’s Workshop Card within a Card

Santa’s Workshop Card within a Card

Hi Everyone! This is another card from my November class. It’s a card within a card! When you open it up, it reveals another smaller card. It’s like opening a present!

Then you open it up to reach the sentiment.

It features items from the Santa’s Workshop Suite of products. I made the card using 147815: Santa’s Workshop Memories & More Cards & Envelopes, but they sold out! The pack was very popular. You could recreate with Poppy Parade Cardstock if you wished. If you happen to be lucky and have the pack, this is another way to use your items! I love how Signs of Santa Bundle is so traditionally whimsy! Looking at this set and what we create with it makes me happy!

147811: Santa’s Workshop Enamel Elements was also used on the card and are also sold out. But again, if you got them early, here’s a way to use them 🙂 You could easily substitute with Frosted & Clear Epoxy Droplets 147801 – Use Stampin’ Blends to make whatever color you wish!

Material Measurements:

Santa’s Workshop Specialty Designer Paper: 6″ x 4″ and 4″ x 3″

Whisper White: 4-3/4″ x 3″

General Instructions: Layer Santa’s Workshop Specialty DP on card front.With Layering Ovals Framelits, die cut oval to be used as mask. Mask over whisper white and lightly sponge Pool Party ink. Stamp sentiment and Candy Cane Season snowflakes (. Die cut images from Santa’s Workshop Specialty DP with Santa’s Signpost’s Framelits or you can fuzzy cut (trim). Add to front. Stamp snowflakes on inside of card. Add Santa’s Workshop DP on smaller notecard and add images. Adhere to inside of card and stamp inside.

I love, love, love how the dies work with both the stamp set and the paper! So whether you want to color or simply die cut, it’s a magical set of products!
