Stampin’ Up! Holly Jolly Layers & Greetings From Santa Cards

Control Freak Stampers

Welcome to the November Control Freak Stampers Blog Tour!  You may have arrived from Kelly Acheson, her projects are always fantastic!  This month the theme is “Happy Holidays” so we’re all creating Stampin’ Up! projects with a holiday theme.


I borrowed a little inspiration from the 2016 Stampin’ Up! Holiday Catalog for this card.  I kept some of the features from the card that they showcased in the catalog with the Holly Jolly Layers host exclusive stamp set but I switched the orientation as well as some of the layers, colors and embellishments.

For my second project I used the Greetings from Santa stamp set and Detailed Santa Thinlits Dies Bundle along with the Pretty Pines Thinlits dies to create a quick Santa card.

  1. Super fab Christmas cards Amy ☺ i really like them both! The first one has sick awesome layers of colors and great background DSP that sets it off. And your Santa is rocking with his cute rosy cheeks and nice pine bough add on. 😉

  2. Beautiful cards, Amy! Love the extra “jolly” on the first one and the pine sprig on the second. It’s those extra touches that always make your cards so awesome!
