Hello & welcome. The challenge for our Christmas Card Club was selected today by our sweet Lorraine of Rainey's Craft Room. Lorraine wanted to see Jolly Santas. Once again, a pretty card sent to us many years ago, serves to meet this delightful theme. Here we go:
- Front of an old Victorian looking Christmas card was die cut with the S/B Floral Ovals. The largest die in the set was required to get as much of this sweet picture as possible, so that didn't leave much space on the A2 size card for added embellies. Distress Ink Vintage Photo shaded around the decorative edges and gold pearls for just a bit of bling. (BTW, wasn't sure how well this intricate die would work on the cardstock, so used the back of the recycle card to test for cut-ability. Now there is a cream white oval to use as a mount for something else! Used several passes for the die, but it did cut nicely).
- Foiled paper is from a 12x12 pack of Paper Studio Christmas paper bought some years previously. Thought the gloss of the foil papers looked pretty with the gloss on the Santa & child.
- MS & SU punches for the border trim. That's it...quick & easy, and another old Christmas card sent along for another to enjoy next Christmas. Lorraine, thanks for a fun challenge.

I do have some lovely new followers to welcome, but will do that in my next post. Yesterday was an all day fun outing at an Heirloom Stamp show, (and yes, I was VERY bad, but it was fun). We left early, got home late, and were very tired. Saw some local friends, met one of my terrific blog buddies too. Gosh, I can remember shopping all day, going out that night. Well, I think I remember...maybe I'm dreaming!
Have a wonderful day and ya'll come back when you can. Hugs
