I love using vintage prints for cards and tend to get away from doing it. I think this is a great Santa image.
I printed the image on photo paper and matted it. The dry embossing is done on Core'dinations paper with Cuttlebug's new Snow Flurries embossing folder for the background and an older snowflakes one for the other panel. The holly branch is Cricut Cut from Joys of the Season cartridge. Berries are 'dew drops'. I stitched around all the various panels, inside and out.
Inside has stitching and dry embossing, as well as holly leaves.
I also made a matching box for it using the same papers and a holly sprig on top.
Thanks for stopping by. Would love to hear what you think.
