Sunny Santa at Diecut Divas

What better way to show a warm and cosy theme but with a Summer Santa. Drawing inspiration from an Australian Christmas and this Bugaboo image here is my project.

Here is the inside of the card where I have created a pocket for a gift card.

Card Tip:
You can use any shape to create a pocket. Whether you use a die, electronic cutter or trace around something. The secret to creating a simple pocket like this one is to run double sided tape up each side and along the bottom, leaving the top open to place whatever you want inside.

Card Ingredients:
Card Stock: white card stock 5" x 7" base, Francheville green card stock.
Papers: Kaisercraft mint twist paper pad.
Stamps: Bugaboo Stamps Tropical Santa Suntan, Simon Says Stamps Warm Christmas Wishes, Gina K Designs Seasons Greetings.

               Hair: C0+C1+C3+colorless blender
               Suit and Hat: R24+R35+R37+R39
               Towel: BG000+BG01+BG02+BG05
               Sand: Y00+Y02+Y06
Dies: Brother Scan and Cut for fussy cutting, Spellbinders grommet tags, MPress curved rectangle.
