This gorgeous stamp of Santa Claus signed Tim Holtz is so easy to use! You can use it as a background stamp if you use lighter inks, or you can even colour it if you want to. I chose to keep it somewhat neutral with brown ink on kraft cardstock, but it's still the focus of the card:
I've used flowers and mini roses, a bling swirl, one of the gorgeous baubles I won a couple of weeks ago on a crop, a Nellie Snellen die (the circle on which the Santa is stamped) and my lovely Magnolia border die (Old Swedish Lace). I don't remember what patterned paper I used, I'm afraid...
This picture is actually featured in the blog Blueness today - I purchased the little "stand" in which I place my cards when I photograph them sometimes. I'm not sure what that little stand is called in English - maybe someone knows? Anyhow - the owner, Åsa, asked me if she could show one of my cards with the stand, and of course I said yes! Go and check the blog and the shop - there are lots of vintage goodies to be found there!
