So, my second card for the week… yes, I did…. this time though, I had a few more supplies.
This week’s challenge at Our Creative Corner, is to make a vintage style card or project which uses a Santa Claus image, along with some red, such as a red button, brad or ribbon.
For my Santa image, I have used a free image from this site which I printed onto Very Vanilla card stock. I have then sponged, and done some red zig zag faux stitching around the edge. Ah, yes, you guessed it, my sewing machine is still packed!
I have used some Be of Good Cheer Patterned Paper in the background, along with some tulle, seam binding ribbon and of course, a gorgeous Vintage Brad and some half backed pearls.
And up in the top corner you will see a little Merry Christmas, this is from the For The Birds stamp set, I have just used my marker to ink up the greeting without the bird.
Check out the rest of Santa inspired projects from the Design Team this week, and please join in the fun, we love seeing your projects.

Oh my word, you do an amazing job with faux stitching! I would never have thought it. It’s beautiful work and compliments your fantastic vintage Santa so wonderfully. I must say Chris, you can rock out a Christmas card with limited supplies outstandingly…it’s GORGEOUS. Love that tulle and pearl embellishments as well.
hugs to you,
Hi Chris, so glad to see that you are getting settled in. I was admiring your stitching and was quite amazed to read that it was faux! It looks wonderful. Your piece is really lovely and I immediately started drooling over the way you used the tulle – brilliant! Beautiful ribbon and brad too. Super piece to inspire our players this week.
Have a great weekend!
