Santa's Sleigh Card with Stampin Up

Santa's Sleigh Card By Stampin Up
Christmas is just around the corner and I am in the mood to made some Christmas Cards. The one I would like to share with you this month is Santa's Sleigh with his reindeer. You have seen me do this card fold before, but so many have asked to see it in other seasons. 


Santa's Sleigh Stamp set (142057)  or  Bundle  (143499) Save 10%       
Santa's Sleigh Thinlits Dies  (140278)
Very Vanilla card stock  4 1/4 x 11, 3 3/4 x 5,  2 pieces  2 1/2 x 5, 2 x 11
Gold Foil card stock  4 x 5 1/4, 2 pieces of 2 3/4 x 5 1/2, 2 1/2 x 4, 2 1/4 x 11

To make this card stand out, start by scoring your base card at 5 1/2, and 2 3/4. Then score both the gold foil and very vanilla strip.  Be sure to stamp and cut out 6  reindeer. 

Stamp and color 3 trees. Oh and 1 star

Die Cut both sections of the sleigh.  Add your Christmas packages. 

Now when you are ready to assemble; Fold your base card in half the fold the top half back on itself. Do the same to your strip. Only when you are ready to put the strip on the card place the 5 1/2 strip on the 2 3/4 part of the base card. In short, the strip is opposite the base card. 

You are going to love making this card. When mailing it is going to require extra postage, because it is a little bulky.

Foxy Little Thing

It is time to start thinking about fall, and the fun that goes with it. This time of the year is when I love sitting on the porch and watching my fur babies play with the falling leaves. So it is only fitting that there be a post about animals. 

Foxy Little Thing fit just perfect when thinking about fall fun. 

Hardwood stamp (133035) 
Soft Suede(126978) ink pad
Cajun Craze (126965)
Fox Builder Punch (141470)
Foxy Friends Stamp Set (141549)  Or BUNDLE TO SAVE (142326)
Very Vanilla card stock measuring 5 1/2 x 8 1/2; scored at 5 1/2 x 4 1/4
Old Olive card stock measuring 5 1/4 x 3

-I stamped the hardwood stamp on very vanilla cards stock using the soft suede ink. For this I allow the hardwood stamp to bleed over on all side, even passing over the scored line.

-Using the  Foxy Friends stamp set I picked our 3 different fox faces. I wanted each one to look like he was peeking in. Each one was cut to 2 1/2 x 2 1/4.

- Now no card is finished until you have completed the inside. I punched a fox out of the Fox builder punch. Remember you need to punch 2 ears and 2 tips of his tail. After you fox is together, be sure to stamp his face and legs. (isn't he a cute lit guy). Stamp your tree stomp, and pop him on top.

-I wanted a sentiment to reflect my thoughts, was I used Pretty Kitty (141861) Just Peeking in to say Hello.

-Add some natural twine for texture and you have the perfect card for any occasion.

Of course the Foxy Builder Punch as just as many different uses as all our builder punches. Check out my other animal friends.

opps my monkey lost his tail.

Now if a fox is not your thing, you can use any of these animals to make the same card. And of course, would all be cute with birthday hats, Christmas hats, or bows on their ears. 

This is a small sample of some of the great things you can make with this set.
