A little bit vintage

Have made lots of 'cute' xmas cards.....so thought I'd go a bit vintage for a change......using papers from the wonderful Graphic 45 Christmas pad.
All the papers......including Santa........ are from the pad......apart from the musical background........a Hero Arts 'cling' stamped with Old Photo distress ink and then further distressed with Antique Linen......as were the edges of all the papers.
The snowflake was die cut and embossed.......did quite a few different embossed snowflakes while the heat gun was out......so they'll be popping up on a variety of xmas projects.
Stamped the SU sentiment direct onto the papers to keep the vintage feel.
And did I resist Shimelle's class....of course not!!!!!! All signed up and logged in.....see some of you other Shimelle stalkers in class I'm sure!!!!!

Love the card! Haven't decided yet if I can take Shimelle's class. I'm presently taking Jessica Sprague's Family History class and it's taking up a lot of my time. I'd sure hate to miss Shimelle's class though. Decisions, decisions, decisions.
