TH Vintage Santa Christmas

Happy Thursday, peeps! I have another Christmas card for you; I have SO many Christmas stamps and I just can't get to them all in one year...but I'm trying!  This one uses a Tim Holtz embossing folder that I didn't even know I HAD!  I paired it with a TH vintage Santa, tree and star, along with some other vintage-y looking doo-dads!  Here we go:

I started by embossing a piece of Cherry Cobbler cardstock and sponging it with some Cinnamon Cider ink, then stamped a Crumb Cake panel with a Cornish Heritage Farms sheet music stamp and the tree from Tim Holtz's Holiday Things set in Evening Evergreen.  I stamped the Santa and star on Basic White in Cherry Cobbler and also sponged them.  In hindsight, I wish I had used Very Vanilla!  I added some gold glimmer paper diecuts in the corners:

and a sentiment from a fun company called Flonzcraft, headquartered in New Zealand!  Isn't that a pretty font?

One of their sentiments for the inside too!  Thanks for popping in today!

I promised some more pictures of Longwood; here you go:

This is the view as you walk into the conservatory, with my favorite tree in the background!

This tree was made of succulents!  Check out the "stars" at the top!

This tree was decorated with all kinds of natural things--pine cones and dried foliage and lots and lots of lights!

John "warming" himself by the fireplace....the swag was probably 6' across!

And this was such a cool display: a whole wall of wreaths and everything you can think of with which to decorate them!  I could have just looked at it all day!

Thanks for visiting today!  Enjoy it and be blessed!

The succulent tree was awesome. TFS the pics and your card! I love the inside font. Really cool how you did the sponging on the embossed piece. I'd love to see your Christmas supplies! I have no idea what I have anymore except that it's too much and more is on the!!

Hey, where was that EF hiding?? It's cute! But not as cute as that darling Santa checking his list!
Thanks so much for 'spoiling' me with more photos of Longwood - what gorgeous trees!

Ha! I'm glad to hear I'm not the only one who has forgotten treasures. Beautifully done card. And you've given me a new source to check out (after the holidays I think).
