Great Impressions Stamps–Santa Wishes

Hello!  Happy Monday!   Did you check if you were one of the lucky “Guess the Christmas Carol” winners?    If not, you might want to check the Great Impressions Stamps blog.  As most of you guessed, the carols that inspired my projects was “Santa Claus is Coming To Town”. 

I have another Christmas card to share with you this week.   This week I used Santa Wishes (G444) from Great Impressions Stamps and gave the chalkboard technique a try.

Your chalkboard card definitely evokes an antique look. It's quite appealing. The button and twine add nice texture. Thanks for visiting with us at 613 Avenue Create.

Cheryl, I really like the chalkboard technique used with this Santa image - takes me back a good few years because chalkboard seem to have been replaced by more modern 'tools'. Your background colouring and embellishments add such beauty and warmth to this card. Good luck in our challenge this week. Ingrid xx (OSAAT Team)
