Naughty or Nice

Happy Monday morning to everyone. I hope everyone had a nice weekend. I am counting down the days until school starts. My daughter starts on September 2. I will be doing the mommy happy dance next Wednesday.
Today my card is based on this CPS Sketch. It is so much easier to come up with card ideas by following a sketch. It saves a lot of thinking time and then all of your cards don't end up looking the same.
I actually stamped my green background paper. I wanted something unique because the green looked too plain. All I did was to take some holly peg stamps from the Rubber Stamp Tapestry "Gingerbread Wreath" set and stamped using a VersaMark Watermark pad. It was really easy to do but gave the unique look that I wanted.
My Santa was made using my Cricut Expression along with the Paper Doll Dressup cartridge. I needed to paper piece his coat and belt. I embossed his beard using the Cuttlebug D'vine Swirls embossing folder. I added a real pom pom to his hat to make it look real. Santa's "naughty or nice" list is cut using the Christmas Cheer cartridge. FYI - all of the names on Santa's list are "nice" so far, we will see what happens between now and Christmas.

To stamp the "Naughty or Nice - Santa Wants To Know" I used the Times Roman 15 point font from JustRite Stampers. I stamped it twice using Memento Tuxedo Black and Brilliance Rocket Red and die cut each using Spellbinders Petite Circle Nestabilities. The green and red mat was diecut using Spellbinders Classic Scallop Circle Nestabilites.

Thanks for stopping in for a visit today. I hope everyone has a wonderful day.
