Today I have made this card for two challenges:  firstly for Jingle Belles - Dreaming of a White Christmas, and secondly for 52 (Christmas) Card Throwdown - theme Old Fashioned Christmas. I've basically made a off-white card with a touch of colour (I spied some blue in the inspiration photo) and chose soft mulberry to show off  my santa.  I used a few layers of patterned card stock to give it some dimension and I think the layers add to an old fashioned feel. I stamped my main image in white and embossed in clear as I didn't want stark white, them I sponge vanilla to highlight the image. To get a softer coloured image of the santa (part of the main stamp) I used mulberry and white ink and embossing in clear.  Then I finished the card with some die cut elements.... a spring of holly, a couple of snow flakes and my sentiment. Lastly I added some pearls and a bow - toned down the colour of the ribbon with Picket Fence Distress Ink.  Thanks for taking a peek
