You just came from Laurie Meier’s blog, she’s great isn’t she? I am Thankful for Melissa Kerman for giving me inspiration!
I got this idea from her at our NC Demo Quarterly (see below for details). We had a tag swap, which stupidly I didn’t join. :-/ Live and learn, right? Well, she made this awesome tag with Santa’s legs coming out of the chimney. Here is a picture of it:
I wanted to make a card from the tag, and this is what I came up with:
I used the Heart punch (which I didn’t know Melissa used, until I really looked at the boots, and was AMAZED!) and she free cut the pants, so I did that too. The Chimney I changed up some, I added some roof so I could put ‘snow’ on the edges. I used the Dazzling Diamonds Glitter Paper and cut thin wavy strips to give the snow effect. I stamped the background with the Snowflake stamp from the Stampin’ Up! set called Snow Place. The Jolly is a framelit from Christmas Greetings. LOVE how I used a white gel pen to put ‘snow’ on the word, then sprinkled some Dazzling Diamonds on top. In person this card looks so sparkly and pretty!!
The ribbon is the Whisper White Mini PomPom Trim! Even though this is all Christmas I got everything out of the current SU! catalog!

NC Demos is a group in North Carolina that gets together all over the state and we have ‘meetings’. Really it’s a great get together where ideas are shared and we stamp ALL DAY!! We learn a lot from each other and go home energized to play/work!
It’s great to meet other stampers, especially close to home!
If you live in North Carolina you can be a member too, as long as you are a Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator! If you have any more questions, please feel free to ask! We really are a GREAT group!!
