Here's my offering... a vintage inspired card featuring Santa from the Picknix 3 Nordic Winter Colletion. To finish my project I added golden stars (which I have been carefully protecting from frivolous consumption) and a sheer white bow (made from a giant roll of ribbon my sister gave me 4 years ago). I am solicitous about the welfare of my stash! :)
Here's a closer look at the jolly man. I coloured him with Faber-Castell Polychromos and inked the edges with Frayed Burlap DI for that aged look. I rounded the corners WRMK ½" Corner Chomper.
