Afternoon Blogland.
I'm back to Christmas again. I was tidying up some left over kits and came across the bits for this card. The image is such a classic of Santa, and not the cutie ones we see now, that I thought I'd remake the card for Susie & Vikki's Christmas challenge - very vintage Christmas.
I have kept the colours to black, white and silver. The lower half of the card is covered in snowflake vellum, taped in place under the ribbon, and held down at the bottom with two brads. I have also added a couple of tiny gems to the snowflakes on the image to add sparkle, and balance the three on the left hand side.
Today's challenges are;
Susie & Vikki's Christmas challenge - a very vintage Christmas
Incy Wincy - black & white + one other (in my case silver)
ABC Christmas - I is for ice
Polka Doodle - monochromatic
Winter Wonderland - anything goes for Christmas
