'Vintage Santa' at Visible Image

Helloooooooo :)
How are we all?
I'm missing my crafting time, working full time sucks but the salary is nice!

It's 'Sooooooozie Tooseday' again!
Today I wanted to share with you some Christmas makes made with the gorgeous Large Vintage Santa for the bargain price of £6, this also comes in a smaller size Small Vintage Santa for £3.

Firstly I stamped the Christmas stamp, using stripes of iced spruce, festive berries and black soot distress ink, then I heat embossed the sleigh silhouette in wow ebony.
I also heat embossed the large vintage santa in wow ebony, coloured in with promarkers, using a glue pen and glamour dust added some sparkle and texture through santa's beard.

To finish I added some ribbon and a 'made with love' charm from my treasure chest and the 'Beleive' sentiment from 'Tala catching dreams', added some bling, matted and layered.
For the second card.......
I again used the large vintage santa in the same way as above but changed to background for the striking gaudete background, I love the boldness of this stamp, finished off by adding the stunning Vintage Merry Christmas in red twinkle embossing powder.

I hope you like my 2 creations and I hope you've entered or are making a masterpiece for our 'Colours of Autumn' October challenge  with a chance to win £20 worth of fabulous Visible Image stamps, you choose whatever you want......great prize!
