One more CAS with DP

I bought this Santa stamp (from Woodware)
when I attended the Harrogate Craft fair earlier in the year.
I have been waiting to use it...

But rather than stamp it and colour it I decided to stamp it on DP -
 from Papermania's 12 Days of Christmas - and cut it out!

The stamp already had a Santa hat on the S
 so I just added some felt in red and white and a white flower with a pearl...

I am going to make this a second entry in

Having 'designed' this first one, I then realised my 12 x 12 had space for 7 more Santas...

For these I decided to use different media for my Santa hats - can you see?

I thought 8 cards from one piece of 12 x 12 was quite good - and that reminded me of the 'Christmas cracker card' - three can be made from one piece of 12 x 12.
I found a piece of two sided Christmas paper in my stash and scored and folded away!

For instructions take a look at

I used a BoBunny stamp for my motif on the front of each 'cracker',
 punched into a round and mounted on a punched scalloped circle.

The finished article...

I am going to submit this to

Happy Crafting!
