Happy World Card Making Day! I decided to go back to vintage for my final offering on the WCMD blog tour. If you're new to my blog, the last 12 days have all been holiday projects for the blog tour so feel free to stick around and browse for a while if you have a little time!
I think this Santa is quite possibly my favourite Christmas stamp ever! He originally appeared on the cover of the Christmas edition of the Saturday Evening Post in 1923 and is the creation of the artist J C Leyendecker. I used a cropped version of the stamp in the card I posted last Friday but I thought I'd go the whole hog and make him the centre of attention here.
I used two stamps from the Primitive Christmas set here too - the sentiment and then the snow dots which I used to make a subtle pattern on the card base by stamping off first and then stamping the fainter impression with Vintage Photo ink.
This is a larger format card (7" x 5") to really show off the image and I used Cryogen White for the subtle shimmer it gives. Copics work nicely on it too.
