Vintage Santa – 30 Day Christmas Cardmaking Challenge

Today’s sketch for the #30DayChristmasCardmakingChallenge had me in a bit of a quandary. I wasn’t quite sure what 3 elements I was going to use for the entire design to be cohesive. In keeping with using retired sets for Nostalgic November I chose the Signs of Santa stamp set.

The Santa was coloured in Bubble Bath to create the vintage look I wanted on this card. You could use our St. Nicholas bundle #163859 to create a similar vintage Santa.

I added layers of stamping to create a collage style background. Our retired Layering Circles dies were used for the centre. These can be substituted with the Deckled Circle dies #162286.

I ran the Nested Essentials die twice around the sentiment to create a smaller label to fit the sentiment well and to work in with the sketch. All current products used have been listed at the bottom of this post. If you live in Australia you can shop online or contact me to place an order.

Have a wonderful week ahead.
