Jolly Santa – May 2023 Christmas Card

Hi friends,

My inspiration for May’s Christmas card came from {BYSHC} Sketch Challenge 33 on their Facebook page. BYSHC stands for “Build Your Stash Holiday Cardmakers”. This is such a fun group of cardmakers! A sketch is released each month for inspiration to make Christmas cards to add to your stash and they randomly draw a winner from all the cards submitted for some fun Christmas goodies. πŸŽ…πŸΌπŸŽ„

You may remember that I’m designing a new Christmas card each month and making several of that design to add to my stash for later this year. The {BYSHC} Facebook page is a great place to find ideas! You can find the cards I’ve designed so far this year here- January, February, March, and April.

I was the lucky winner in last month’s drawing and this Jolly Santa from Your Next Stamp was in my prize package. He’s so perfect for the focal point for this month’s card! Your Next Stamp is a new company to me and they have so many cute things – you should check them out! I’m not sure if the Jolly Santa is still available, but I’m sure you will find lots of fun cute stamps and supplies on their site.

I stamped Santa with Memento Tuxedo Black ink on white card stock, colored him with Copic markers, and trimmed him close.

To make the card, I used {BYSHC} Sketch Challenge 33 as a guide. I attached a piece of green patterned paper to a white card. Then I attached a smaller piece of red patterned paper to the center and a strip of another patterned paper over that. I attached Santa to the card with foam tape.

Creating Christmas cards throughout the year helps to make the holiday season a tiny bit easier. Check out the {BYSHC} Facebook page (and the links to my monthly cards above πŸ˜‰) for lots of inspiration. πŸŽ„
