Vintage Santa

Good Afternoon Ladies,
Yes I am posting late in the day today. I went to take photos this morning and my battery was dead in the camera. Now I knew it was close to being dead yesterday. But I thought I could get one more day out of it. Well I was wrong. So while I was at work today is was charging and now I have taken the photos I needed to take for the blog.
So here is my card today....
 I call this card vintage Santa. Santa is a stampabitlites stamp. A new one for me. I just love him. I stamped him on La Blanche paper that I purchased at http://www.atjoansgardens.com/ I stamped the image with black archival ink by ranger. I then colorized him using Tim Holtz distressed inks and pen nibs. I added stickles to the chrismas star and stickles to santa's hat. Crystal laquer creates the lenses of his glasses.
For the inside of the card I used a spellbinder die and a clear stamp sentiment from inkadinkado.
Yes still working on Christmas cards, along with other themes.
Happy Scraps,
Mrs. Swandog

I like the minimal color. The glasses are the perfect touch. I will have to borrow that idea from you. LOL
