Dear Santa

I know, I know! Christmas is MONTHS away... but I recently made this little holiday card using another one of my Gorjuss Girls! There's a challenge going on right now on the Sugar Nellie blog & you have to make a Christmas card using one of their images. I love the versatility of this stamp! It could be for Valentine's day or Christmas... AND would be perfect for one of those "Just a Note" kind of cards!

I've been seeing some of these fun paper embellishments around blog land and wanted to see if I could figure out how to make them. I'm not sure if I'm doing it "right"... but I just fan-folded a tiny piece of paper and adhered the ends together. The tricky part is getting it to lay flat. It took a little extra adhesive... and then I added a chipboard star to cover up the center and ends.

This paper was part of my recent CARDS magazine goodie box. I REALLY love it!!! (It's called Roxbury Scrap Strip by Scenic Route.)

This Gorjuss gal was colored with Copics (surprise, surprise) and her hair was highlighted with a gold Spica glitter pen. (just click on the pic if you want to see it up close & personal.)


  1. Fantastic card. I don't know how you can create such a beautiful card when all I can think about is spring and warm, but you have done a superb job.

  2. Awww this is so cute! Great work:)

  7. Hi Julie,
    You are always so clever in thinking up ways to use your images in a different way. I love the rather plain paper and the fact that you used her for a Letter to Santa. Great colours and I like your flower embellishment with the star and button - it looks perfect to me. I should see if I can make one - I really like it!

  8. Awwww....I love that you used this image for a Christmas card!!
