Vintage Santa Framed!

I just love this vintage Santa, so I transferred his picture to cloth and framed him!  This is such a simple card to make and I think it looks complicated.  I just layered the card with black paper, designer paper, a strip of ribbon, a frame and the Sweet Santa backed with black.  I popped him us one level and added the pearls.  Voila!  A card ready to send out in just a few days.  Chrismas is only 48 days away. 

Paper: Cloud9Design, Bazzill black
Diecuts: Spellbinders Frameabilities Classic Frame
Embellishments: Wal-Mart black velvet ribbon, Kaiser pearls, my own Santa on muslin.

Purchased this cute little girl with dog singing Jingle Bells last week from

This is my first card with digital image instead of a real, hold in my hand, rubber stamp.  I was hesitant to try this but found it to work just great. 

I printed the image on white cardstock and colored it with Prisma pencils and used Gamsol to blend the colors.  I'm not really good at this but I've studied several tutorials on different blogs and  decided to give it a try.  Lots of fun!  I'd like to figure out how to print on 110lb. cold pressed water color paper since that is my favorite for stamps to be colored by hand.  It holds up well and can absorb a lot of water. 

Hope you enjoy this little card.  If you have questions just email me or leave a question in the comments.  If you really love it, it's for sale at  Thanks for stopping by.
