Eclectic Ellapu - Christmas...but not a card

Today kicks off the December challenge over at Eclectic Ellapu and my very first post as a DT member.
Theme: Christmas...But not a card

For this challenge, I decided to create a Passport in honor of Santa's upcoming travels. If you recall, a few months ago I made a similar design, but with a different theme. Here is the link to that post The impossible is often the untried.

The design was perfect for a Santa Passport, so I decided to make a second one. 


The base is very easy to put together.   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 Santa 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!
