Very Vintage Christmas...

I love that this new
Stampendous, "Vintage Santa"
 image looks exactly like those I recall from my childhood.
I remember the holiday cards my family recieved in the 50's were very much like this,
and when I went online to look at vintage cards, it brought back so many memories !
 
  
I colored the Jumbo Cling "Vintage Santa"
that I had printed on light kraft paper with Copics.
With the teensy, tiny gold rhinestones, there is just enough sparkle to add a glitsy, holiday feel.  I stamped and heat embossed the sentiment from the
"Christmas Wishes" set.

 
The border was punched out of kraft, and the rhinestones attached to that, also.
I like that I kept it simple and didn't over-layer or over-embellish the card.
I kept telling myself to KEEP IT SIMPLE.
I really like the result!
 
This stamp is SOLD OUT but will be back on the shelves after September 11!
