Santa is coming to town

Hey, Santa is coming to town.

I loved the Quick Cards Made Easy Issue 145! The beautiful Christmas Tim Craft Helz Cuppleditch paper pack and the stamp was a crafter’s dream even though clear stamps scare me! I am terrified of colouring with Copic Markers. I have watched several videos from experienced Copic Certified Tutors and I am still terrified! However, I was very enthusiastic about this stamp, I stayed focussed! This card, was from a tutorial in the magazine.

For this card I have used:

  • Card base made from solid white cardstock
  • Printed papers from Tim Craft Helz Cuppleditch paper pack, a free gift with the Quick Cards Made Easy magazine.
  • Christmas stamps
  • Gold sequins
  • Clear flat snowflakes
  • Tim Holtz Fired Brick Distress Ink
  • Stazon Black Ink
  • Copic Markers
  • Spellbinders Circle Die Set
  • My Xyron Tape Runner, some Ranger Matt Medium and Foam tape held this all together.


I covered the card base with the red polka dot patterned paper. I trimmed the reindeer pattern paper and cut a circle in the centre from the Spellbinders Circle Die Set. Then the nerve wrecking best part: stamping and colouring! I used black Stazon ink to stamp the image, a gold pen and some copic markers to colour in the image and I think I nailed it! I was quite pleased with my effort. The image here does not do justice to my shading! Better image next time? I think so! I fussy cut the image and popped it up with some foam squares. I cut a fish tail banner for the Merry Christmas sentiment and popped it up with foam tape too! I finished off this card with beautiful gold sequins and clear snowflakes.

I really loved how this card turned out after following the tutorial in the magazine and I certainly will make more cards similar to this.

So this is what the girl and her tape runner has done!

It is the most wonderful time of the year!
