one paper line…two looks

I love creating with papers that can lend themselves to many different styles. Today I have two more holiday cards and they are both created with the Mitten Weather 6×6 paper pad from Cosmo Cricket. One paper pad and chipboard sheet can give you a myriad of different cards to create for the holidays.

Vintage Merry Santa

This Santa looks cute and trendy straight from the chipboard sheets but it’s easy to make him look a little vintage. I’ve covered him with Rock Candy Distress Crackle Paint and a little Distress ink for a fun look.


While I love distressing, I also love the crisp and clean look too. For this simple project I’ve used up lots of scraps, rounded the corners and substituted the O in noel for a chipboard snowflake. Substituting elements for text is a tried and true design trick.

Have a fabulous Monday!
