More Vintage Santa

I'm getting on well with my Christmas card production now. This card is another entry for this week's Let's Get Stamping sketchie challenge over on Craftbubble. Using the sketch and including distressing, I have again chosen this lovely Vintage Santa collage stamp from Crafy Individuals. I used Antique Linen, Fired Brick and Pine Needles distress ink pads to create the distressed look. The BP is from the Dovecraft Victorian Christmas 6x6 paper pad. The Merry Christmas ticket is a stamp from Magnolia which I heat embossed with gold embossing powder. The gold ribbon is from my stash and the green Card Candy was one of my purchases from the Sincerely Yours Paper Extravagaza which I went to in Taunton last saturday. I decided to make another easel card, they are so easy to make and yet look so impressive. I think quite a few of my cards this year will be made this way! The layers on the inside of the card and the 'stop' for the front panel, were cut with a nestabilities label die, with the top layer up on foam pads to raise it up.
