Santa's List - Featuring Creative Cafe' Kit of the Month - Creative Christmas

Happy Saturday Everyone!  It's Halloween today - but I'm going to share with you a Christmas card from this month's kit cause it's such a terrific kit! 
Today I played with layers and border dies.  I love the prints in the paper pad from Echo Park that you get in this kit so much that I wanted to use as many as I could in today's card.   First here's a look at my card that I'm calling Santa's List. 
The card base is green A2 card 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 - scored at the 4 1/4". 
The top two pieces were cut as 2 3/4 x 3 1/2 and 2 x 3 1/2. 
They were overlapped a bit- to fit into the 4 1/4" width.
Here's a close-up - I stamped and fussy cut that sweet Santa, and created a pieced list that I die cut the top with a torn notepad edge on.  I also stamped the phrase 'Ho, Ho, Ho!, 3 times on this piece.
To work on the lower portion of my card I got out my Spellbinders border dies and played around until I found 3 that worked well together.

The bottom pieces are all about the same width - 1 1/2" x 4 1/4"
The bottom edge piece is just cut straight-
The next red patterned piece I used a large scallop die
The light patterned piece is a decorative scallop die with some embossing as well as cut work
The final green layer is the same color from the card base.  I used a smaller scallop die that I laid on an inlet cut piece to make it more airy.  I used this to cover the seam from my Vertical top pieces as they transist into the horizontal borders at the bottom.

The Santa and his list are popped up with dimensional adhesives

Well that's all I have for now - I hope you've enjoyed this month's kit - and all the amazing cards and inspirations the Design Team has shared with you - Keep your eyes open there will be a new kit revealed soon!
