Vintage Santa

It's time to make a card for the Christmas Card Club and it was the lovely Lizzie's turn to choose the theme and she asked us to make a vintage card.

I have a whole load of vintage pictures, oval and rectangle, that I got in a moment of madness ages ago and I've only ever used a couple of them. They have a bit of a strange glimmer on them - almost an embossed glitter, hard to describe ... I'm still not sure whether I really like the look or not.

Anyway, this card used an offcut of DCWV paper for the background and a piece of My Mind's Eye paper torn in an oval as a backing to the Santa picture. I only had a very small piece of the red and gold netting, so I cut it into two because it wouldn't go all the way across - no one is going to know that it's just two little snippets, are they?! With the addition of three little red gems the card was done.

This is another card for my CHNC challenge 121: red and green must be seen - hope to see you there!

I based the card on Stella's sketch 135 on Catch the bug:
