Vintage Santa

For this card, I was going for a vintage CAS look, and I think I achieved it.  The Santa image is a vintage freebie from Digital Stamp Design.  I sponged around the edge with black ink to give it a more vintage appearance.  Other supplies used for this card are:
  • Ink:  Versafine Onyx Black
  • Cardstock:  Recollections
  • Die cuts:  Nellie's Multiframes - Squares and Spellbinders Fleur de Lis Squares
  • Pre-folded Card Base:  Dollarama
