July 2020 Week 3 Theme of Santa Challenge no 27 for 52 CCT

Welcome to Becca's Heart for Creativity blog! My heart and soul have enjoyed a bit of cooler summer temps these past few days--low 80s! Before this blog is revealed we are suppose to be back into scorching temps and heat indexes!!! Ugh! So internally cool down by thinking about Christmas and specifically about Santa.

That's our theme for Challenge #27-20 at 52 Christmas Card Throwdown challenge blog! I've made 2 cards yet only sharing 1 at 52 CCT. The 2nd card is made with several of the same supplies and a layout variation but it is a humorous version that I intend to give to my husband for Christmas--he's MY Santa! :)

Card #1: Hi! Santa

Card #2: I [heart/love] Santa

a. The tri-dotted patterned paper and the strip of black and white checked patterned paper = The Paper Studio/Hobby Lobby
b. Red ribbon and white card bases (w/ matching envelopes) = Crafter's Choice
c. the rest of the embellishments, red ink pad, red glitter paint pen = in my stash for awhile
d. and if you haven't figured it out yet, the Santa image is an upcycled gift tag that is overlapped a bit on top of it's back piece that I reversed to use the dark pine green rather than the white...a set of 6 or 8 designs were what came in the tag packaging...I thought they had some good graphic designs. This one was perfect for our Santa theme!
