Pop Up Santa Card.....

I started off by stamping this Santa Image loads of time in all sorts of colours.....He's lovely don't you think, a proper Father Christmas....

The stamp is by Rubber Stampede.

For this card, I stamped in Night of Navy on shimmery white cardstock. I layered this on some navy from craftworkcards and some silver.

Then I went to find some more navy and OH! No! I only had a small amount left. Then I remembered see a card at my friend Tracey's House last year where she had cased an idea from a card she saw at a Craft Show. So I thought I would have a go as I was short of the navy.




So I used the navy for the spine of the card and folded it as shown in later photos. You can see the finished inside of the card on this photo.






This is a view of looking down on the inside of the card. Shows up the folds much better.



















Have a quick go, its great for leftover bits of cardstock.

Have a great day,
Jenny:-)xx

Gorgeous Santa card, and I love the idea when you were running low on navy cs. Thanks so much! I was just working on these Santa images (received from Wish RAK), and I was curious what you had done with him. Great ideas! TFS with us.
