Vintage Father Christmas

The gorgeous Father Christmas stamp is from La Blanche and has been stamped in brown Versafine ink then cut out using a nestie label die which I've distressed with gold ink, TH tea dye and edged with the brown versafine. The backing paper is a gold embossed vellum from my stash which I've aged with some brown versafine and edged with gold ink. I've edged the base card with gold ink too. Card is finished with a ribbon and a Clarity stamp star which has been stamped and embossed with gold EP then layered for dimension.

Winter Wonderland - Santa Claus is coming to town
