There were so many fabulous stamp sets and bundles in the 2018 Stampin' Up! Holiday catalog. So many sets I am going to miss. I had so much fun with the Signs of Santa stamp set and the coordinating dies and wanted to play with them for this week's Create with Connie & Mary Challenge.
I saw the long strip behind the oval and immediately thought of the North Pole sign in the Signs of Santa stamp set. The rest of the card just fell into place after that.
Unfortunately it appears that the Santa's Signpost framelits are no longer available. I used them to cut out the pole and Santa. Fortunately, most of the images in this stamp set are not very intricate so it wouldn't be too difficult to cut them by hand. The patterned paper I used is the Santa's Workshop Specialty DSP. I cut out the scallop from one of the designs to use as a border. The Poppy Parade polka dot is also from the Santa's Workshop paper pack.
This challenge is for 2 weeks so the design team will have a little break to prepare and enjoy the holidays. This will also give you a little extra time to check out what the other designers created for this challenge.
