Christmas Cards using Stamping Up Stamp and Die sets: 'Signs of Santa' and 'Christmas Banners' and Uniquely Creative dies: 'Slim Stacked Merry Christmas Die' and 'Slim 3 Window Die' (Post# 1 of 7)

Dear Bloggers,
Several years ago I purchased, 'Signs of Santa', a super cute stamp, die and paper set by Stamping Up.
I industriously stamped, coloured and cut out images and then.....nothing. The delightful little elves, Santa and the rest of the Yuletide crew were unceremoniously placed into a draw, where they remained for several years. My mojo had run out but this year it is back, so I was determined to resurrect these little guys and give  them the limelight that they deserved. I ended up making well over 30 cards from this set!!

I had quite a few elves that I had meticulously coloured but not cut out. I didn't really feel like fiddling around with the elf dies, so I used a versatile  die by Uniquely Creative, 'Slim 3 Window Die.' (A favourite). Each little Elven head was placed into the square template and I was very happy with the results.  The 'Slim 3 Window Die' is also fantastic as it allowed me to use all the pretty papers in the Collection. 

Stamping Up has in their current catalogue, a great stamp and die set called, 'Christmas Banners'.  I especially like the smallest banner as it seems to work so well with  many different cards.  I feel the banners are such a stylish and useful way of adding text to my cards.

Uniquely Creative's ,'Slim Stacked Merry Christmas Die' is one of my favourites dies of all time.  The image it cuts  is so gorgeous that it really should go onto the front of the card but it is also great used inside.   I had some gold foiled Christmas papers that were waiting for their forever home, and they looked amazing cut and inserted into the card.
