Santa Passport Card

Well, it is the Day after Thanksgiving, the official kick off for the Christmas Season. So in honor of that I am sharing with you our first tutorial.

 A few months ago I created a passport card on my own blog over at Taylormadecards4u. I had promised that I would come back and add the tutorial. I have linked the original post above. For this card, I modified the theme to create a Passport in honor of Santa's upcoming travels. 

Santa Passport Card


The base card is exactly the same. It is two pieces of craft card stock measuring 
7" x 5.5" and 5 3/4" x 4.5". I scored the larger piece at 3" and again at 1 3/4" up to the first scored line. You will need to cut off this rectangular piece so that your card has all the layers showing.


I then scored the smaller card stock at 2". I adhered the 4.5" x 2" flap to the inside of the larger piece.
This created the base of the card. I covered the base card with vintage looking paper before putting the pieces together. It made covering the card a lot easier along with the rounding of the corners.

Once the base was covered with my designer paper, I adhered the 4.5" x 2" flap to the inside of the larger piece completing the structure of the card.

Before decorating it, I distressed it using Distress ink - Walnut Stain.


From there I just started decorating. I downloaded the image from http://janetkdesignfreedigitalvintagestuff.blogspot.nl/.  Unfortunately, she has since closed down her blog. But any head shot of Santa will work , you just want it to look like a passport photo.  I  then added "The Journey" using a remnant rub on.

On the last flap, I created a pocket to hold Santa's Documents. This set is from 7 Gypsies and is called Tags Assortment. 


I finished it off by adding a few more stamped images and some embellishments. 
The overall project was very easy, it was finding the right decorations to make it truly look like Santa's Passport. 

So now we don't have to worry about Santa's upcoming trip! His documents are all in order and he will be able to visit all of us without worry!

I sure hope you enjoyed my first tutorial and hope you give it a try!
