Over at Make My Monday the theme for this month is Christmas. And this weeks challenge is to make something in the Traditional/Vintage style. So here is the card I have done for this.
Now I think you can get no more traditional than Santa himself and this stamp is one I turn to most years, I actual got this SeeDee's set about 5 or 6 years ago and they get used every year.
Here is a close up of the sparkle on his hat and beard. The stamp was stamped with black archival ink then coloured with pencils for the face and gel pens for the hat. I added glitter glue to the trimming and the stars to give him that extra twinkle. The stamped image was cut out and matted onto green card, that was then matted on to patterned paper from the Papermania Christmas range. I then added a doily that I had inked with DI and highlighted the design with a gel pen, just added the sentiment and it was finished.
This months theme is a great one for this time of year as we all can do with the extra push to make another Christmas card, so come over to Make My Monday and join in with the challenge.
