Vintage Inspired Santa

Good morning friends ~ I've got a sweet vintage Santa card up for you today.  

I started by embossing a piece of white A2 sized cardstock using a snowflake embossing folder then mounted it onto an A2 sized top folding card.

I cut the Sue Wilson Bold Snowflake Frame out of kraft cardstock and rubbed a bit of Gathered Twigs Distress Ink around the outside edges.  This die set includes 5 dies that can be mixed and matched in lots of different ways.

I cut the Poppystamps Evangeline Snowflakes out of white cardstock that had double sided adhesive on the top.  I removed the release paper from the snowflakes and added Elizabeth Craft Designs Cool Diamond Silk Microfine Glitter to the tops.  They're so sparkly and pretty in real life but hard to capture in a photo.

I've had this vintage Santa image in my stash for a long time and finally decided that it was time to use it.  I cut the image out using one of the circle dies from the Sue Wilson Bold Snowflake Frame and mounted it to the inside of the snowflake frame.  Then I scattered the Evangeline Snowflakes on the front of the card and finished it off with clear gems.

A quick and easy last minute Christmas card!
