Heart of Christmas Week 10: Santa Express Memories and More for Quick and easy Christmas Cards

Final HOC Graphic 2022 400 x 400 px

Welcome to another week of the Art with Heart Stampin' Up! Team Heart of Christmas blog hop. This week I decided to use the Santa Express Memories and More Card Pack and the coordinating cards and envelopes, to make a couple of quick cards. I love that the cards and envelopes are perfectly sized and coloured for the Memories and More cards as this makes for very quick and easy cards.

For this card, I started with one of the 6x4" cards adhered directly onto one of the coordinating cards. I cut one of the 6x4" cards down to a 2" strip which I cut a banner end in. This pops behind one of the 3x4" cards. The corner stickers and 'hohoho' embellishment piece is included in the card pack. To adhere the wooden embellishment, I placed some multipurpose glue onto a silicon sheet, and used a sponge dauber to sponge it onto the back. When it's tacky, I then adhered it. The glue peels easily off the silicon sheet. I have also added a couple of red rhinestone jewels to the berries on the corner stickers.

For my second card I have just used three of the 3x4 cards in various ways, which are attached to one of the 6x4" cards which is adhered directly onto one of the coordinating base cards. I have cut one on the 3x4" cards down (the Evening Evergreen one to pop behind the others. I then offset one and attached it to the feature card (I added the feature card to an Evening Evergreen mat first).

I attached the 'joy' wooden embellishment (from the card pack), the same way as the previous card. The rest of the sentiment is stamped from the Brightest Glow stamp set. I then added some red rhinestone jewels to the corner berries for some added dimension.

Oh Claire, I love both your Christmas cards. They are so fun. I love the colours you have chosen, your layering and the addition of the woodcuts. All so beautiful and fun. Xxx

Great use of the Memories & More pack, Claire! I love how versatile these M&M packs are for scrapbooking as well as cardmaking and those wooden embellishments are wonderful!

Great use of the Memories & More cards and elements, to make lovely Christmas cards, Claire. I especially like the first one. Love the use of red rhinestones to embellish the berries.

Two great cards using the Santa Express M&M card pack, Claire. I love the addition of the wooden elements as they add a special 3D element.

Your Santa card gives a nostalgic vibe. I LOVE his face. You did a great job with the "Santa Express" kit. Your layout on both cards is wonderful!!

Lovely cards Claire, I love seeing how people use the Memories and More cards. My pack is somewhere between Eastern Creek and Sunshine LOL! Can't wait to see them in real life.

Love your quick cards Claire. The Santa Express Memories & More pack has both great printed images and embellishments and your first card gives a lovely retro feel.

Two fabulous cards Claire. I love when crafters use the Memories and More elements to make beautiful cards. It really shows just how versatile they can be......not just for scrapbooking.

Oh wow, great use of the Santa Express Memories & More cards and all the layering. That Santa face makes me happy, with his cheesy grin. The wood elements add great texture as do the rhinestones. Great quick cards!

These are great! I purchased the kit to make my December album, but now I'm hoping I have plenty of leftovers so I can make cards.
