I used the borders4me stamp set and the postmarks2stamp along with my favorite inks - Stephanie's Premium Dye Ink colors and the new Sprays! spray ink to put together a stationary set for writing letters to Santa Claus.
The envelope comes pre-addressed to the North Pole and the papers contain the same postmark border. We of course need multiple pages because there is always someone who wants to add to their list or let Santa know about a misbehaving sibling :)
This faux wax seal is so easy to create and really adds an official touch. Emboss several layers of Scentz Embossing Powder in Peppermint and on the final heat set, press your stamp into the hot powder. Just be sure to ink up your stamp with watermark ink or a color to keep the stamp from sticking.
And to round out the set, I included a Santa head that can be used as an ornament or just a paper decoration. It is paper pieced and painted with the Premium Dye Inks as watercolors. His hat is colored with Sprays ink and accented with Sprinkles Chunky Glitter.
So much fun to create! I can't wait to fill this out with the kid's wishes!
