The challenge on 52cct. this week was a colour one, use black and white, with a splash of red. Took me a while to come up with this one, until clearing the desk revealed this old SU santa stamp  at the very back, unused since it arrived a while ago as part of an assortment of stamps from ebay.
Base card is a black square cut down from A4, and the embossed backing panels are using a snowflake die, I think an old quickcutz one. The black panel was swiped with a white ink pad after embossing, then sprayed with crafters companion silver spray - the white panel was just torn, edged with versamark and vanilla ice EP. The top note die was cut from the same black card as the base, spritzed with the silver spray, edged with versamark and vanilla ice EP again. The santa image was stamped in black versafine, red is poppy promarker, cut using an xcut die - the red layer uses the next size die from the same set, just twisted round.
This card also fits the simply stampin challenge I found a link to somewhere in blogland


  1. This is a great way to use monochrome with the touch of red - he certainly is a jolly Santa

    I really like how it have just picked out the hat on your vintage santa, I was very sad to see this set retire, also loving the texture on your background. Thanks for joining us this week at Simply Stampin'.
