SSS December Card Kit Inspiration Week-Day 2

Hello, friends. I'm back today with another card using THIS December Card Kit from Simon Says Stamp. If you missed yesterday's inspiration using the kit, click HERE.

I thought it would be fun to create a Santa's selfie card. I die-cut a polaroid shape from an older die that I had in my stash. I stamped a mask for each image using THIS masking paper. Whenever you are stamping a scene with masking, you stamp whatever each image you want in the front first. Then you add a mask after you stamp each image. This is how I created the group scene. After stamping, I colored in the images with Copics.

To make the photograph shiny, like a polaroid picture, I added THIS on top of the scene and clear heat embossed it.

I stamped a couple of coordinating sentiments from the kit's stamp set and adhered the entire piece to one of the patterned papers in the kit that was cut with THIS die. I finished off the card with a few strips of washi tape and a heart.

I have more inspiration to share. I'll be back with Day 3 tomorrow...

Thanks for stopping by.



  1. oh I love this card too! I am finding myself a huge fan of masking lately. I love how you turned it into a selfie card. :)

  2. oh and I have never thought to clear heat emboss over the image, but it really does make it look like a photo! I had to go back and re-read how you did that. WAY cool idea!

  3. How clever to add the sheen, I was wondering how you did it! It’s the cutest little Santa selfie ever! Love the composition, the idea and it’s beautifully coloured!
