Vintage Santa

To make this Christmas card I decided to try a technique I've never tried before.  I stamped Quiet Santa from Whiff Of Joy onto kraft card stock.  (I usually stamp on white). The base of my card is kraft card stock. I inked the edges using a chestnut brown ink pad.  I added a piece of Christmas plaid card stock.  For a little contrast to the dark greens and reds in the plaid card stock I cut a strip of sage green card stock and inked the edges using the same brown inkpad.  I added it to  a piece of kraft card stock that I punched using an eyelet lace border punch and inked the edges of it. I added a boutique moss ribbon and brown sugar baker's twine to the top of it.  I colored the image using crayola and prisma colored pencils.  I inked the edges with the brown ink pad.  I stamped the sentiment beside the image on the sage green.  I finished off the card by adding 3 off white pearls to the upper corner and a bow to the twine.
