Jolly St Nick


I love this jolly Saint Nick! He's from SU's Old Fashioned Christmas set, as is the sentiment. He's stamped with Memento ink, coloured with Copics and cut out and embossed with Spellbinders Labels 2 dies. Paper is SU's Holiday Treasures, finished with a few gold pearls.

I'm finally getting on top of cards and gifts - I've just been making some fudge to give to friends in our village but the jury's out as to whether it will actually set or not! That'll teach me to try and do it without using a sugar thermometer!

Are you making any handmade gifts this year, I'd love to hear about them!

Thanks for stopping by!

Recipe:
Stamps - Old Fashioned Christmas (SU)
Ink - Memento
Card/Paper - Ruby Red, Chocolate Chip, Old Olive, Holiday Treasures DSP (SU)
Other - Labels 2 dies (Spellbinder), Cuttlebug, Chocolate Chip ribbon (SU), gold pearls

Gorgeous card, i do think he is fab too. Just adore the papers you have used too. Unfortunately not making any handmade gifts this year, but putting them in my gift bags I've made. Fudge sounds fab.

Beautiful card, love the papers and the lovely Santa.
Fudge sounds lovely. Made a few gifts this year, a birthday reminder and some folders with cards. Next year I will do a bit more.

I love this one Kate - the papers set it all off beautifully

We will be making almost all our gifts this year. Ranging from Chutney to scarfs to notelets to candles and a few altered items are in the offing too

Beautiful card. I love that Santa image and the papers you used make the card look so elegant.
