Hey, everyone! I love being part of Christmas All Year Long for Scrapping for Less! It’s such a great way to build up my Christmas card stash before the holidays sneak up on me! Today I’m creating a quick card that can easily be mass produced using different patterned paper!
The Santa’s Workshop 6 x 6 paper pad from Carta Bella is full of gorgeous fun and whimsy papers! I chose two more classic patterns – but this card can easily be recreated with a more whimsical pattern to give a totally different feel! I chose the red paper for my background and I die cut the blue pattern with a reverse scallop frame to be the backdrop for my focal image.
I stamped the little mouse from the Sweet and Fun Holiday Your Next Stamp set and colored him in with alcohol markers. I just love his little tray with fruit cake! I also stamped a sentiment onto a strip of cardstock.
I adhered everything together – the sentiment strip with liquid glue and the frame and mouse with foam squares for dimension. Here’s a short how – to video!

Hey, everyone! It’s Lynnea! I know many of us find ourselves scrambling in November and December to create Christmas cards for friends and family. At Scrapping for Less we are celebrating Christmas all year long! Once a month we will be sharing inspiration for a Christmas card! I used the Photoplay Here Comes Santa paper pad and a sentiment from the Stocking Full of Joy stamp set from Your Next Stamp to create a set of 7 Christmas cards!
I used about 5 pieces of patterned paper to create these 7 cards! And in the end I only had 2 little strips left! And I created all 7 cards in about 20 minutes! Yay! I have a video tutorial at the end of this post so make sure you check it out!
I started by cutting up some pieces of patterned paper – some had little images (like pictured above) and some into strips of varying widths. I didn’t follow any sketches, but these are super basic layouts that can be easily replicated!
I needed a sentiment for some of the layouts and the “Happy Holidays” sentiment from the Stocking Full of Joy stamp set seemed perfect! I love the little script!
I had a bunch of strips of paper left over, so I decided to use them to create one more card! Plus I couldn’t let that little Santa image go unused!
Thanks for joining me!
