Letter to Santa



Hello,  I made an early start on Christmas cards this year, and I think I'm almost there, most of them have been very simple and quite flat for easy posting and if it hadn't been for the little bell, this was almost flat.
I've used the Tim Holtz 'Letter to Santa' layered with the Postcard script from Stampendous, which I stamped in red and clear embossed.  The background paper was stamped with a snowflake using Versamark and brushed with Perfect Pearls, although most of it isn't showing. The greenery is the TH Thinlits Holiday Greens.

I am entering this at:
  Vintage Stamping Challenge - Traditional Christmas
  Penny Black and More - Christmas

Hope you have a great weekend,  Take care,
Avril xx

Hi Avril,

It is a pain when we have to keep thinking about the thickness of cards for posting isn't it. You have achieved a lovely traditional feel with the warm reds, cheery Santa and seasonal embellishments.

Many thanks for sharing with us at FlonzCraft Vintage Stamping and Penny Black and More challenges.
