Vintage Santa

     Second past today but I'm using another image from MHK Designs this afternoon and I just couldn't wait to share it.  I started out wondering if I could do a CAS vintage card.  Those seem to be such opposites in my mind but I think this works.  What do you think?

I pulled my colors from the challenge at House that Stamps Built.


      The image and the "Santa Claus..." sentiment are printed together onto the card front for a single layer card.  I used ProMarkers to color the image, and then added gold glitter to the candle flames on the tree.  The "Jolly Christmas..." sentiment is done in shiny gold so the card has both shine and sparkle.  Everything is bordered in red CS so maybe this isn't technically a 'single' layer card.

I think with this image, you could pull off any kind of vintage. : ) It's stunning, so it really doesn't need any embellishing. Thanks for playing with the House That Stamps Built.
