It's Beginning to Look A Lot Like...

This is my third card based on the sketch I created for Jingle Belles. In my previous post HERE, I explained that I am a guest star at Jingle Belles this week (so exciting!) For this card, I let my imagination run wild and came up with this rather silly card with a Santa suit and hat to represent the main elements in the sketch.  Can you still see the sketch in this creation?  The Santa suit was so easy to make. I grabbed some felt, cut it into the shape of a hat and suit and then used some polyfill to add faux fur.  In addition, I hand cut a belt from some scrap pieces of black cardstock, folded it around the suit and adhered it with glue dots. I used MS Word to print my sentiment on white cardstock, cut around it in the shape of a banner and matted it on black cardstock.  Of course, I wrote "Christmas" inside the card to complete the sentiment.

Cardbase: Paper Studios, Patterned Cardstock: MME 12 Days of Christmas,Black cardstock: from my scrap stash, Whole punch, Polyfill, Red Felt, Adhesive: Elmer's Glue Spots,  Scotch ATG

If you were inspired by the sketch, please link up your card over at JINGLE BELLES!


  1. This is so darn clever ... I love how you used the belt as a sketch element. I made my second card today & had a blast ... thanks again for joining us.

  2. oh WOW!!! just when i thought i could not be MORE impressed with you, missus, you pull a THIRD magnificent sketch card out of your SUPER-TALENTED hat! absolutely LOVE the felt, love the clothing elements, and that belt just sooooooooo totally ROCKS MY WORLD!!!!!! (and again i say, "wow!!!!") ♥♥♥

  3. What a clever idea! I tend to take sketches very literal, so I would have never come up with something like this in a million years!

    Thanks for the great sketch! I had fun playing with it!
