Doodlebug's Here Comes Santa Claus - Part Two

Welcome to Part Two of my Christmas in July 6x6 Series. I am using the Here Comes Santa Claus collection from Doodlebug Design and my 6x6 Paper Pad Tutorial to make Christmas cards. 

I recorded the entire disappearing 6x6 process and also created separate videos for each sketch used. At the end of the 6x6 series, I will post the sped up version of the entire tutorial.


I used a square sketch from Mojo Monday and simply figured out the measurements for an A2 size card instead. Go HERE to see how I figure out sketch measurements. I love using layers on my cards. It has definitely become my style of card making. And the nice heavy weight card bases I use can handle the extra layers. I think adding layers can change a card from just a 'Nice Card' to a 'Wow Card'. Whether I'm giving my cards to friends and family or to complete strangers, I want to make the very best card.



I made a total of 4 cards using this sketch.


Stamp - Lawn Fawn
Stitched oval die cuts - Lil Inker Designs
Ink - Lawn Fawn
Brads - from stash

Thanks for visiting my blog today!

    1. Thank you, Tammy! The Mojo Monday sketch was designed for a square card. But I figured out measurements for an A2 size card instead since that's the size I generally use.

  4. Great job of converting this to an A2 card. More cuteness from Doodlebug. I am surprised I ever buy anything else. lol!

    1. Thank you, Jennifer! There have been very few Doodlebug paper collections that I haven't purchased. But I still try to get a few of some other brands. Although, I'm super fussy and will only use a few other brands of 6x6 paper pads.
