Vintage + Clean & Simple Santa Card

Ho ho ho!  Happy holidays to all of my crafty friends out there!  Today I'm sharing a quick, CAS Christmas card that's pretty no fuss and perfect for a last minute cards to send out or accompany gifts. :)  It uses a beautiful image from Red Rubber Designs that I am in LOVE with, too!  Take a peek!

This image is actually found two different ways in the Red Rubber Designs shop.  The first is alone as the Vintage Santa Cling Mount Stamp.  The second is to buy it in the Vintage Santa Unmounted Rubber Stamp Set.  It's SO beautiful and large--it is PERFECT as a stand alone on any card or other paper craft.  All I had to do for this card was to stamp it in brown ink onto a kraft card base!

I decided to keep the embellishments simple, so this card would be great to give to a man in your life.  I just added a few strips of washi tape, a layered snowflake, and a few sequins.  I kept with just a POP of red and silver among the gold in order to keep the main focus on the gorgeous image.

After stamping and adding embellishments, all I had to do was round a few corners in order to make the card seem more finished.  I think that it turned out beautifully, and I hope you do, too!  Please leave me a comment below and let me know what you think of my card!

I'm entering my card into these fabulous challenges~

Thank you so much for stopping by today, friends!  That's all I have for you right now, but I'll be back later on with more paper crafted creations for your viewing pleasure!  Until then, HUGS and happy stamping, all! :)

Such a super traditional Santa image and your use of one colour really fits in with its vintage look. And then that little pop of modern pink - just fabulous. Thanks for sharing at The Male Room.
