Vintage Santa

Over at Fab's Big Christmas Card Challenge this week, the theme was Vintage Colours and/or Stripes, so just to make sure I'm covered, I included both.

The Santa image was free from Dover Publications and was printed onto hammered card for a textured effect before rounding the corners and inking the edges.  In hindsight I should probably have matted it onto gold mirri card as well - maybe next time!
The green patterned paper is from my scrap box and the stripey paper and sentiment are from a paper stack produced by HOTP
which is filled with fabulous designs perfect for achieving the vintage look.  
A strip of gold mirri card is used to cover the join and is mounted on foam pads behind the image.
Better get this over there before he sets this week's challenge!
