A creepy Santa?

You'll understand when you see the close up. I mean, he looked awesome irl...but that photo, oh, it's a bit disturbing. I hope the recipient likes it! LOL! Anyway, this gorgeous image is from Rubber Cottage and I got it at the stamp show I went to here in November. I love the vintage look and feel of the whole card.
I used Basic Grey Wassial paper and stamped the image in Cranberry Adirondack dye ink. I did some aweful stitching that I was thankfully able to coverup the worst with a big sentiment! I don't know who's it is..it was unmounted and I just don't remember! I added some sprigs under the die cut sentiment using my Martha Stewart punch. I love that thing! Then I added some sparkle with diamond glaze and diamond dust glitter and also with my Sakura Stardust gelly roll pen, hence the evil glaring. What was I thinking?! All the panels are sponges with Antique Linen and Walnut Stain Distress inks.
Have a good night...if you can sleep after seeing this!!!

I love the colors and DP on this Danielle - and I wouldn't have noticed the glare if you hadn't pointed it out!!! I love that punch too - I've been using it a lot on cards and projects!

Totally laughed all the way through this post. You are hilarious! I'm afraid I don't find the creep factor in this Santa as I do in the Magnolia images with no noses or mouths. LOL They will always creep me out. I do love this card and agree with you that the coolest part is the vintage look. Love this card! Best, Curt
