Vintage Santa


Happy to say that I had time to make another Christmas card.  This vintage Santa is such a striking image; I love his old world charm.  I stamped the Santa then sponged on Distress ink to the edges to add to the vintage feel.  I used a distressing tool to rough up the edges of the paper before mounting it onto Christmas cardstock.  The gold twine picks up the colours of the bkg. paper.
I am adding my card to the Always Playing with Paper challenge (Santa).
Thanks so much for coming by and taking a look.

Supplies:  stamps; Stampington and Company/ Distress ink/ pop dots/ distressing tool/ gold twine
