Week #6 Vintage Santa Card - Bo Bunny Homespun Holidays Toile paper

Edit: OMG I scheduled this post to show up on the 9th of March, that's why it never appeared yesterday ! LOL My mistake, just noticed it right this minute, I hope it shows up now ?!?

I always liked this BoBunny paper (Homespun Holidays Toile), it gives me the feel of a by-gone era and at the same time trigger memories of time spent in North America in my youth, using wooden tobaggan with my sister and having fun in the snow. I needed something to go with that paper and I came across these Mamelok victorian cut out of a vintage santa, the pinkish-red of his coat seemed to match the paper so I went for it. I created an extra accent with the leftover paper using the Bows template from Hot Off the Press and adding a bow brad (HOTP). I've matted the bow twice and edged it a bit with Close to My Heart daisy white ink pen; to make it stand out somehow. It seems to have done the trick !

As usual post a comment and add a link to your weekly Christmas creation, don't forget the gallery will be shown on Week #9 ! Have fun building up your Yuletide stash ! wink
