Featured Stamper card and a disaster with vellum

Today's featured stamper over on SCS is Terry, TERRORE3. She is very nice, I see her about SCS all the time and she has a lovely gallery! I chose this cute card to case. I was drawn to the lovely bouquet of flowers on the vellum.
I should have passed it on by and chose another, cause just about all day later... here is my card.
I liked the idea of DP with words on it for the background and dug in my Christmas scraps and found this. I stamped the santa with Stazon and colored it with Copic markers and used liquid applique for his beard and hat. Well, the vellum got a bit warped with the heat and I had a devil of a time making it look good and laying semi-flat.
I tried assembling several ways and ended up gluing the the DP and cardstock together first. Then stamped, colored and heated the vellum piece. Then I ran vellum tape all over the DP and stuck it as best I could and then did the staples. The end result is way too not perfect for my tastes, and the kicker was I stamped the sentiment a bit crooked! Ugh! Well, it's not all lost, I am sure my sister will use the card for one of her friends come Christmas time! LOL!
Card deets:
Stamps - both stamps are from Michael's
Paper - old olive, misc DP, blush red medium from Prism papers
Accessories - Copic markers, vellum tape, liquid applique, grosgrain ribbons


  1. You are so clever~! He is just wonderful with his puff up fur and beard~ Love the casual staples and the way you did the ribbon too~!

  2. I love this card - I saw that one in her gallery also but didn't get to the challenge yet! I have issues with heating vellum too - but this looks adorable - great Christmas card!

  3. pretty- love the applique! I always get curling when I heat the vellum.
