Santa Collage Christmas Cards



I am so *in love* with this image. It is so easy to use, looks good in any color, and adds a vintage look to your cards. The red one is my absolute favorite even though I stressed over what to do with that ribbon slider, because I was running out of room. I want to make about 5 more of these, because there is NO way I am giving the red one up! LOL--I think this one really has old fashion country charm--I think Shabbychick might like this one too *wink* She is my inspiration for the vintage style.


CS: Brilliant blue or real red and ruby red, black, dp from DCWV, and blush blossom scalloped SU punch from my good friend Jlazarski


Image: Santa Collage by Rubber Stampede from Nancy (Crooked River). Thanks, again, Nancy!!! *hugs*


Ink: StazOn black and Distress Ink (tea dye) around edges


Accessories: Off white ribbon with red snowflakes (given to me from AlliesMem), stickles, and sakura gel pen both to add sparkle to Santa's beard and the snowflakes.

I love these images, too and you did a wonderful job on your cards. Now that I have a few of my own images to play with (thanks to Nancy!), I might just have to CASE one of your layouts!
