Santa Claus Is Coming To Town!

Hello TRC Fans!  I don't really know if I am really ready for Christmas card making time but none the less, it is here!  October is the perfect time to start making your Christmas cards so that you get the finished and ready to go before to rush of the holidays is upon you.  Yeah, like I ever have really listened to my own advice!  LOL    But thanks to the October Creative Cafe' Kit - Creative Christmas, you have all the supplies you need to makes some really cute cards for your friends and family!

Here is a quick video showing you all the wonderful supplies that are in the October Creative Cafe' Kit.

I love the color combos in this kit.  Here is a card I put together using a different color combo that you probably wouldn't expect!

The base of this card is made from the Granite cardstock included in the kit.  I cut the cardstock to 4 1/4 x 5 1/2" and folded it in half.  I cut the blue paper (from the paper pad) to 4 x 5 1/4".  Using a Versamark pad and the snowflake stamps from the Bonus Set - Christmas is Coming, I sprinkled some Heat 'n Bond powder onto the snowflakes and heat set them.  Then I sprinkled on some You're So Fine - Diamond Clear Cool Highlight glitter and then heat set it again.  I stamped the village silhouette onto white cardstock using Gray Flannel Memento Ink and cut it out.  I cut a strip of the patterned paper that had that cute Santa with his reindeer and snowmen from the patterned paper pad and layered it onto a strip of the Granite cardstock.  I added some of the white scalloped velvet ribbon (that is included in the kit) along the bottom of the strip.  Plus I stamped the sentiment onto white cardstock and made it into a banner.  Here is a close-up....

This was a fun card to create.  Heat 'n Bond powder is like a powdered glue that works great with glitter because once you heat set it, it doesn't come off!
