The Character Cafe Feature Friday - Santa Easel Card



For today’s Feature Friday card with The Character Cafe, I decided to use this amazing looking Santa with his list!  I added Stickles to his had for a “glitter” effect, so I’m using this for the Cuttlebug Challenge Blog! 

Yes, I know his scroll is blank!  As soon as I figure out who I’m sending it to, I’ll write their names on it.  In the meantime, he remains with no confirmed “good” boys & girls on his list!  LOL 

Oh and while we’re on the topic of Santa…I *do* know that Santa’s beard & hair is supposed to be white (MOM!!), but he already had too much other white that his hair & beard would have just gotten lost in the shuffle.  ;o)

The card itself is pretty straight-forward.  It’s an easel card (A2 sized card), cut at 4.25” on the short side of an 8.5x11 sheet of cardstock, scored at 5.5” and scored again at 2.75”. 

  • Red & Black Cardstock – Cardstock Online
  • Patterned Paper – DCWV Christmas Stack (an older stack)
  • Button & Ribbon – from my stash
  • Sentiment – Christmas Daily (if someone has a link, please let me know!  I can’t seem to find mine to give credit here!)
  • Bling on Santa’s hat – Star Dust Stickles (loves these!!)
  • Copics – E50, E53, E00, B24, 0, C1, C3, C5, C7, C9, R24 AND R29
