Flower Soft Santa Toppers

Welcome to my blog, With a Stamp and a Song!  If you're hopping with the Flower Soft design team, you should've arrived here from Linda's blog!  We are sharing some beautiful projects using our new series of Santa toppers.  These are gorgeous full color printed images that quickly create the focal point of a card, ready to be embellished with Flower Soft or Glitter Frosting for a fast and easy finish.  They're great for "mass production" of cards for your Christmas list, but they would also make lovely coordinated gift sets or even impressive home decor projects for the holidays.

I used Forest Santa to make a simple, standard-sized card.  Santa's beard and the fur trim of his suit are embellished with ultrafine white Flower Soft.  There's even a twinkling sprinkling of Glitter Frosting snow illuminated by Santa's lamp.  I just love the beautiful blue of this glowing scene!  (It's so hard to do justice to a photo with Glitter Frosting!)

For the inside, I used (stamped off) Memento ink to stamp a Silhouette Stamps Christmas Sentiment under a light dusting of snowflakes.  Glitter Frosting brings a little sparkle without overwhelming these delicate images.  I used distress ink on the edges to bring the warm woodland hues of the topper to the inside of my card.
