Good Sunday morning. I have an easy clean and simple silhouette project to share with you today using the Impression Obsession Santa and Tree Line dies. I think the clean lines of the trees and Santa silhouette work perfectly together to create an interesting yet quick card. I added a few more layers to this than usual but I like the contrast of the background paper with the images.
I started by attaching the layers for the background. I cut the Tree Line, cut the tall tree from the left side and moved it to the right side so the tallest tree would be under the highest reindeer. Did that make sense? I used the tree line as a template to draw the line for the ground snow and, cut it out with my deckle scissors. I crimped it with the wave crimper, attached it to the tree layer and attached the it toe the base layer with mounting tape. I used small pieces of mounting tape on the back of each tree to hold straight and in place.
I cut the Santa and attached it to the scene with small pieces of mounting tape. I attached a double section of tape to the highest reindeer so it would have another layer of dimension and appear to be making a slight turn in the flight. I finished by adding a tiny star to the tallest tree and covered it with yellow stickles.
Here’s a closer view from the side so you can see the dimension of the scene. I love the whimsical simplicity of this card.

Great card….I almost purchased the Santa w/sleigh and reindeer…think I’ll go back and get it if she still has one in stock….
I am so impressed with your design eye Kitty – this is another beautiful card!
I love this card. It is just so sweet and I love the effect of the crimped paper. It reminds me of snow drifts.

This is simply wonderful Kittie! Love the Santa die!
This is lovely Kittie, I picked up that Santa die last week and am so happy with it! I have to try this! I think that Impression Obsession have come out with some great dies this Fall and they are very popular at my local craft store. I haven’t used my paper crimper for such a long time, going to dig it out and dust it off! LOL
I love this card! Simple & beautiful. I think I need the Santa die.
I love this card. It’s so pretty. In answer to your prize question, I am really hooked on dies but I like stamping to so I do a bit of both.
This is so adorable
Kittie, this card is so much fun! It makes me smile. Thank you for the smile today. Thank you for sharing this fun, whimsical card with it’s beautiful simplicity. I need the wave crimper, I will have to track one down. I have the regular crimper, I haven’t used it much. Now, that I have been inspired by your beautiful cards, I will be using it much more. Thank you for sharing your beautifully, inspiring creations. The beauty of your artistic creations lifts me up daily more than you will ever know, I am so very thankful and happy to have found your blog.
