Build A Santa | New Build And Layer Dies

If you know me at all, you know I love me a good Santa! I have a collection of them that I put out each Christmas and I love adding to it when I find the "right one". This year, I got my first blow mold Santa and I love the vintage touch he has added to my collection. Besides my home decor collection, I also love incorporating Santa into my card designs, so you know I was super excited when I got the new Build And Layer Santa Die from They have just released a range of new Build and Layer Dies that include some fun holiday designs. If Santa isn't your thing, they also have an adorable bear that will be great for Christmas or Winter themed projects and some really cute Halloween designs that I can't wait to play with because I can Halloween all year long!

Here's a peek at the new Build and Layer Dies. Which one is on your wishlist?

Enough with the jibber jabber. Let's get on with the making! For this card, I began by building my Santa. I die cut the various layers using and adhered them together and set him to the side as I continued on with the rest of the card design.

Recently I made a card background using the Christmas Stitched Border Strips Emboss and Die Set. I really loved how it turned out, so I decided to use that same idea on this card. However, instead of using so many colors, I choose to only use 2 colors on this card. After I adhered the strips, I added some machine stitching around the outside edge and adhered the panel to my card base.

To go along with my cute Santa, I added the number 25 using the Bold Numbers Die Set. I then die cut some holly branches and added some sparkle to them using Snowflake Pops Of Color.

I then finished it off with a sentiment from the Wordfetti FaLaLa Stamp Set which I heat embossed with white embossing powder.

Thanks for stopping by today. I hope you enjoyed this bit of inspiration using the Build and Layer Santa Die Set.
