Graphic Santa

Hello Fresh Squeezed fans!  Katie Gehring here to share another clean and simple Christmas card idea.  You may have heard of a little movie from a few years ago called Bad Santa.  Well, let me introduce you to Graphic Santa.  While Bad Santa wasn't very nice, Graphic Santa is graphic, but in a good way.

For this clean and graphic card, I incorporated some color blocking by heat embossing the bottom portion of the Hey Santa button from Hello December in white onto red cardstock and lined it up with the image stamped with red ink on white cardstock.  A bit of baker's twine and matting the tilted panel with black cardstock helps to draw out the contrast between the red and white.

Hello December

This card makes great use of scraps of red cardstock which may be floating around your craft table this time of year, plus it's practically flat for easy mailing. Well that's all for me today!  Thanks for stopping by!   -Katie
