IB150 Vintage Santa Cheater Card

 Hello peeps, and happy Thursday!  Oh boy, do I LOVE today's Inspired By challenge!  Check out this sweet prompt:

As some of my stamping friends know, this is right up my vintage-Santa-lovin' alley!  These images just remind me of Christmas from when I was a wee one!  But I have to admit that I "cheated" a wee little bit in making my card today!  I happened to be hoarding some scrapbook papers from Authentique and I decided to break them out!  So the only stamping I did were the sentiments on the front and inside!  Here ya go:

Isn't he a jolly fellow?  And that reindeer is just too cute!'s the stamped sentiment on the front, from Pink Fresh's December Days:

And I did add some sparkle to Santa's beard and hat with some Martha Stewart and Dazzling Diamonds glitter:

And I found a simple sentiment from Close to My Heart for the inside; the card base is Mossy Meadow, so that's the ink I used, stamped on a Naturals White mat:

I love this guy, he's going to be difficult to mail away!  But hopefully he'll make someone smile this Christmas too!  Now, what will you create with our inspiration photo this week?  Can't wait to see what you make....share it over at the IB blog!  Thanks for popping in today--enjoy it and be blessed!

"Commit to the Lord whatever you do, and your plans will succeed.  The Lord works out everything for his own ends--even the wicked for a day of disaster." Proverbs 16:3-4

You can't imagine how excited I was to see your card, LeAnne! I just knew you'd pull out one of your amazing vintage prints - you know how much I love them, right? This guy is just the best - and his 'deer' little friend! no WAY is this a cheater card - it's surely Santa Approved!
Thanks for making my wish come true!

Oh my goodness, this couldn't be any more perfect! And yes, that little reindeer is darling. You nailed this one LeAnne!

Bonnie said...

You had the perfect image for this challenge, LeAnne! Love this Santa and the sweet deer! The bit of sparkle on his beard adds texture and that sentiment is equally vintage!
