Vintage Christmas

I was inspired to make this card following a sketch challenge for the CAS on Sunday blog. I had chosen these cute vintage papers from SU! for my Christmas cards this year. This collection is called Home for Christmas. There are loads of cute Santa's and trees for me to fussy cut and make into cards!

The tree and presents are glued down, and I put glue dots on the back of the Santa to raise him up just slightly. I cut the banner using my old Creative Memories paper trimmer, then punched the ends with the SU! banner punch. The sentiment is from the Joy Clair Christmas Wishes stamp set that I did some tweeking to.

The word Christmas is actually below the Merry. I taped off each word before inking so I could make them side by side. Since these are photopolymer stamps, I also curved them on my block to match the banner curves. Love that about clear stamps!!

A few tiny stars were stamped on the banner from the same set, then I used dimensionals to raise it up. To add to the vintage look, I sponged the vanilla panel and card base with Baked Brown Sugar.

Thanks so much for visiting today!!
