Cathy is our hostess with the mostest this week, and I couldn't wait to play with these wonderful colors of Cream, Dark Red, Chocolate and Olive!

Oooh, I just fell in love with this Santa the minute I saw him in all his vintage-y sweetness! To fit him all in, I made my card a bit larger than usual size, 6.75 x 4.5". He is stamped on Naturals Ivory in Memento Brown and colored lightly with SU pastels, then cut out with the Top Note diecut. I sponged the edges for some more of that nice vintage look. The background papers are from a MME's scrapbook paper kit called The Merry Days of Christmas; this is one sheet, both sides being used. I added some retired SU Riding Hood Red ribbon, a button and some glittery greenery. Too bad you can't see it so well, but Santa's beard is snowy and glittery too:
Well, take my word for it......it's glittery!
Santa and the sentiment are both from Flourishes; I finished the sentiment on the inside:
by stamping the words on another Naturals Ivory panel, cutting it out with a Nestie, then mounting it on a panel from the scrapbook kit that I "antiqued" to go along with the vintage feel of Santa. I also stamped an envelope I had left over from some old Christmas cards. Yep, that's me.....green (or should I say red!).
So stop on over to the CTD blog to see what the other designers have come up with! If you have any questions about anything here, just shoot me an email! Thanks for visiting and have a blessed day!
Gosh, I just love this card....I think I'll just keep it for myself! :D
