Vintage Santa and A PeeGee Hydrangea
Today I have the neatest vintage santa to share...I just bought this stamp yesterday for only $4.39...can you believe that? Our wonderful scrapbook store is closing their doors and they hope to be gone by the end of November, but each day they are still receiving new items...this stamp was one of them (sorry I can't mention the name)..I am so upset by this, as they carried everything, and I went at least once a week...I know most of it can be ordered online, but I love to browse and "feel" the items in my hand.
Whoops...guess I got side-tracked! I inked this santa in Stampin'Up's Riding Hood Red...you can see I did some sewing around the card...I just love the look of sewing on a card....I found a piece of a vintage satin ribbon that was the perfect color....the holly, I cut out with a die on some foil paper, they were popped up for a 3d effect and I "bent" the edges up a bit......cardstock used was all SU...Garden Green~Very Vanilla...I also stamped the inside of my card and inked the edges a bit.
