Holly Santa

This week we have another classic looking sketch that will be very fun and versatile to use. Here it is:

Tuesday Morning Sketches is sponsoring the prize, and here it is:

Is that not one super prize? I wouldn't mind having that set myself!

For my card this week, I have used a red card base and layered a piece of green with holly. This is from an old pad that I bought several years ago and only have about 2-3 pages left. Needless to say, the cover is missing, so I cannot tell you the manufacturer. The holly background goes with the holly in back of the Santa image. 

I cut my Santa image and matted it with red and then green. I'm not sure I am overly pleased with the final mat (the red with white swirls). I may end up going back and replacing it with a dry embossed solid red but I'm "living with it" for a little while to see.

I wasn't quite sure what the line at the top 1/4 mark was supposed to be, so I added a piece of gold ribbon and a bow which I think turned out right nice looking. I topped the card off by adding a poinsettia flower with punched holly leaves tucked behind.

The DT have created a plethora of wonderful cards for various occasions showing just how versatile this sketch can be. Please take a minute to visit the blog and have a look at the beautiful work there. Then, of course, we would so like to see what you do with our sketch! 

Happy Halloween to all who celebrate; otherwise, happy Tuesday (smile)!


  1. Cute card! I don't use Santa on my cards, but I do like the Victorian ones!

  2. I just love that vintage Santa image and how you framed it! I think the white swirls on red look very nice and perfectly frame the image! Great papers and a perfect little bow finished this card beautifully!

  3. Gorgeous card! The paper is pretty and the image is just beautiful. The rich gold ribbon is the perfect embellishment.

  4. You do such cool stuff with your vintage classics Jenée I like your take on the sketch a ton!!
