Mr. & Mrs. Claus Cards

 Hello there my crafty friends! Happy Friday! Today I am sharing two Christmas cards that I created using the cutest files from KaDoodle Bug Designs - Cutie KaToodles Mrs. Claus & Santa Bear.

These cards each measure 5 x 7. To make these cuties, I used ReCollections cardstock, Blaze Velvet Paper from Sei, Foil cardstock from DCWV and designer cardstock from Doodlebug Designs Inc. - Sugarplums 6x6 pad.

I uploaded my svg files into Design Space and cut them out using my Cricut Explore. I then chalked each piece with Colorbox Chalk Inks and pieced them together.

I added Stickles for a glittery effect to the hat brim and sleeve cuff of Mrs. Claus as well as to the hat and cuffs of Santa.

I also made a bow and attached it to the present that Mrs. Claus is holding using red satin ribbon I had in my stash and added three small red pearl adhesive gems to the holly on her hat.

I used my Banner Dies and Stitched In Circles Dies from Craftin' Desert Divas and adhered the cuts to my card base.

The stamped sentiment on my card is from a Sunny Studios stamp set.

I thought that the card needed a bit more "bling", so I then decided to add some sequins. I used  some Christmas/Noel sequins from ArtMinds as well as sequins from the "Jingle Jangle" assortment from Craftin' Desert Divas.

To finish off my card, I used a white gelly roll pen to add some highlights to both Mr. & Mrs. Claus as well as the stitches on both of my die cuts.

I love how these turned out and I know the two children who I plan on sending these to will love them. Well, that is it for today! Thank you for stopping by and I'll see you all again soon with another crafty project!
