More Holiday Cards

The kids are cleaning their rooms here after supper, so I thought I'd take a brief moment to share my other holiday cards.

I'm sure I'm not the first person to use the ever popular mustache images and make it Santa's. It really is perfect for that! But, to me, it's his beard that is far more iconic. No one ever talks about pulling on the 'stache, but the beard is always fair game, tight? I used the cloud die from A Muse Studio and trimmed it down just a bit, then applied some flock. My kids have said it is their favorite so far. However, it is one that is more complicated to mass produce, so it probably won't be "the card" this year.

Now this one, I could easily replicate, especially if I omit the twine border. It doesn't get any easier than lining up three clear stamps on an acrylic block and stamping right onto cardstock. Add a simple holiday image, maybe some glitter or bling and you're practically done! I'm leaning heavily towards making this one in multiple.

It has felt so good to stamp lately; I hope I can find more time soon!
