Santa Fold up Card

Hi Everyone,

I was playing with my Katzelkraft stamps again. I got inspired by a card from Heike Paulus from Mrs P's Papercrafts. Her card was quite elaborate, but I made a more simpler version of it.

Mine is a mini fold up card - I basically took an A10 card and folded it into thirds.

I took the Santa stuck in the chimney form the Noel Keep Calm set and stamped it onto the top third. Masked it and sponged around. Colored the Santa etc. with Inktense pencils. the "snowflakes" are water drops.
The Santa peeking out from the chimney is from the Noel KTZ 158 set. Colored it the same way.  Lastly I  stamped the sentiment into the middle third - it is from the set English Quotes. the merry Christmas is from a different stamp company.

On the photo below you get an idea how this folds up. In order to hold it together I made a banderole out of Washi tape - you see it on the top photo.

Happy Stamping!

I've been intrigued by the Katzelkraft stamps and will someday have to try them out. This is so cute! Love the border you made to look like Santa's belt, and the fold is a great idea! Thanks so much for playing along with us in our Santa challenge at Double D!
