Santa's on His Way

Well, hopefully Santa's on his way, as there's only a week left before the big day and this card  also fits in as a reminder that you still have a week left to join in the last challenge of the year at Try it on Tuesday, where our theme is Christmas is Coming.

I masked Santa, before stamping the background and added some holy stamping before adding to a tartan layer for a traditional vintage look.  Some festive greens and jute ribbon to complete.

I'm hoping to do some visiting, but it's a bit slow a the moment - (my computer has developed a very wicked gremlin with a mind of it's own, but hopefully, the nice man in the computer repair shop can  get rid of him) so any commenting will be using my phone for the next few days.

Thanks for calling in,
Avril xx

This is so festive and beautiful. The background for Santa gives an additional vintage flair and the greeneries look pretty.

I absolutely love that background (I have it and was full of plans to ink it up this year, but time ran away from me again!) - and you've made it look even better here with that simple inking to create the perfect look of old paper. Delightful greenery and a wonderful pop of colour from Father Christmas's suit and the plaid frame. A delightful card.
