Vintage Christmas Cards

Good Day to you all,

I hope you all are enjoying your holiday time with your family and friends. I know we just had Christmas and now we all will be "Ringing in the New Year" in a few days. Gosh, time flies, I just can't believe it's gonna be "2015".

Well with Christmas last week I didn't get a chance to post some of the things I made. So I will be sharing a few posts today.

Here is a card I made for Christmas, I have to say the pictures are nice but in person these cards turned out beautifully and I left the inside blank. I hope you get inspired to make some Christmas cards early, of course I totally get it if you care Christmas'd out. As some of us have been making cards and creations since November or even earlier. Right?
**There is Gold Ribbon and kraft corrugated paper behind the Santa.

***There were 3 of each decoupaged tag so I made 12 altogether. 

Stamp: TH Stampers Anonymous -Urban Grunge (used the flourish stamp from the set - I embossed with clear embossing powder and then rubbed distress ink over the embossed image.
Paper: SU - Vanilla cs; The Paper Company-Gold Mirror; Kraft paper (used behind the decoupaged tag)
Ink:TH Distressed Ink - Evergreen bough, Festive berries, Fired brick, Tea dye (all were used in order to achieve the background I wanted)
Accessories: Snowflake punch; Stickles - Champagne (center of snowflakes & placed around the card); decoupaged tags  Gold Ribbon from Stash (placed behind the decoupaged tag)
