Like a bowl full of jelly

I was happy to get to share a short tutorial on OWH Stars and Stamps today featuring how to make a Santa card.  The version here is slightly different from the one in the tutorial.  I used buttons instead of brads, white ribbon instead of black, and a metal slider instead of a soda tab for the belt buckle.  I also added two vertical score lines on either side of the buttons; they may not show up well in the photograph unless you click to enlarge it.  I made this kind of card last summer and had some fun with them, so I wanted to make a few more this year.  You can see my original post from August 2011 here.  If you want to see a similar card, check out OWHtv episode 29 from September 2011 where Sandy shared some cards in this same style minus the beard. 

I hope you try your hand at some Santa cards!  Thanks so much for visiting if you came over from the OWH blog.  I'm happy to have you here!

  6. These are adorable, Kathryn! Thank you for the great tutorial. It was super easy to follow! I had a friend over with her kids for a play date and we managed to squeak in a few minutes to make these. :)

  11. Kathryn,

    This is adorable! You come up with the most clever ideas -- I'm still awed and inspired by your door and wreath idea from last season. :)

    TFS!
