Old Fashion Santa

I have been very bad about keeping my blog up to date... Thanks Torrey for inspiring me to get back to it.
With volleyball in full swing, it's been tough to find creative time, but thanks to my mom and sisters, I got to spend three days creating with them. It was a great retreat and a wonderful way to get back into my creative frame of mind... Thanks ladies, love ya!

So, here's one that may turn out to be my Christmas card this year. For months I have noticed this stamp and loved it, but never actually put it in my cart. Well, the weekend retreat inspired me to buy it and this is what I came up with. A simple card with an old-fashioned flair.

The santa is colored with chalks and a white gel pen. I also added some glitter to the snow flakes and used a gold glitter pen on his glasses. The paper is My Minds Eye, glittered cardstock and regular cardstock. I ran some of it through a CuttleBug embossing folder and added lots of stippled sepia ink to tone it down and give it more of the old-fashion feel. I love the way it turned out!
