To be honest, I bought this Jolly Old Saint Nick stamp set only for the big Santa face. I love that Santa face! See for yourself on page 26 of the Holiday Mini Catalogue. Isn’t it adorable?
But the more I use this set, the more I appreciate all of the images and how well they work for making fast and fun Christmas cards. For this card, I paired the snowman with the "Wishing You a Merry Christmas" greeting to make a card with a completely different look from my Santa cards. And the snowman and snowflake images can be used well after New Years for thank you and birthday cards since winter will be here for awhile yet.
This card uses just one colour, Night of Navy, with the Whisper White. I think it makes this card really clean and crisp looking. I also used only Night of Navy accessories – the 1/4" and 1-1/4" striped grosgrain ribbons and Regals Big Designer Buttons with some rhinestones from the Basic Rhinestones package for more bling. I added rhinestones to cover up the stamped snowman buttons as well as the center of the navy designer buttons.
