Angel Art Blog Hop For November







Holiday Cards & Tags in ten minutes or less is our theme for November!

I choose to make a couple of cards using this new Vintage Santa this is a set of six stamps from the Fall/Winter Inspiration Avenue Magalogue.
I really love all the stamps from this set
but especially the sentiments, it's such an elegant script and are now among my favorites...
The snowflakes remind me of batten burg lace... I think there so pretty!
And this Vintage Santa looks just as great stamped without any coloring as he does colored... talk about a quick card.
The Season's Greeting card is made with our beautiful Scarlet Cardstock the snowflakes were stamped with Brilliance Moonlight White. The strip of Kraft Cardstock is stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and the white MS punched border is White Ultrasmooth Cardstock. It's embellished with a snowflake brad stuck through a black button and a touch of white grosgrain ribbon and Black Scrappers Floss.
The Vintage Santa Card is made with the same scarlet cardstock I then stamped the Santa on the white ultrasmooth cardstock with the Memento and just colored in the holly& berries and his rosy checks with my Copic's. I used a touch of the Clear Stardust Gelly pen on his pipe & holly. I then mounted it to a torn piece of Black Cardstock stamped the sentiment and embellished with white grosgrain ribbon, add a couple of nested buttons from the Elizabeth Buttons & Blossoms Collection... a touch of scrappers floss and it's complete.
Thanks for stopping by!
