Father Christmas

This is one of my favourite stamp sets in the new Stampin' Up! Christmas Catalogue that was released on the 1st September, You could do so much with this stamp set, I have decided to go for a Vintage Look with this Christmas Card by sponging the side panels for my card and stamping the holly on the side panel. I have then also sponged the centre piece and mounted it with the adhesive foam strips and lastly Father Christmas is also on dimensionals cut out with the layering ovals framelits.

Take the time to check out my UTUBE CHANNEL for some great videos.
