Christmas Vintage Santa

Crafting with vintage elements usually stretches my creativity, especially with color choices. The patterned paper on this card is cut from one sheet of 12 x 12 glittered patterned paper by My Mind's Eye (Lost & Found Christmas). 

I wanted to get both of the images in, so I cut them into different sizes. The red, cream, and brown provided a challenge for adding elements, I wanted to keep away from too much green, but also have some brightness, so I used white mats and a deep blue glittered base. When I added the bird die cut, I used a soft blue glitter paper and added the pop of green in the tree die cut. All of the red on the top layer is glittered. Both cuts were made from Cricut's Joys of the Season cartridge, a new favorite of mine. A little "Noel" pop sticker finished out the card.
