Santa Christmas Cards

As promised, today I want to share with you my “Santa” cards.  Really, they are all things Christmas, but you get my drift.  I must admit I was having a hard time pulling together ideas for cards this year.  Thanks to Michael’s 70% off Recollections Christmas paper and 22 kindergarteners, the creativity began to flow.  

I work with a classroom of excitable kindergarteners who are already amped up for Christmas.  When asked  their favorite memories about Christmas (in their 5 years of life), it was stockings, making Santa’s nice list, playing in the snow and PRESENTS, of course!

This is what I created around those memories:

Fireplace Stockings: White and Teal paper.  Mantle - SU Adorning Accents Edgelits, Fiskars - Seasons Greetings stamp set, Inkadinkado -  Dot Flourishes stamp set. Stockings - Recollections Stickers.

Santa’s Naughty or Nice list:  Paper – Recollections Sugar Plum, Madison medium window die, Santa’s list – Silhouette printable file, and naughty and nice with check box – created in Silhouette.  Ferns cut from Silhouette file and holly red – small punch.

If you lack inspiration for a card, ask a 5 year old, they got Christmas!  To my little friends, thanks for putting joy in my Christmas season and filling my heart….love you!

Enjoy!
