Traditional Gift Card or Christmas Card

As Christmas draws closer I am trying to get those last few cards made.

I'll be giving some gift vouchers this year and thought I'd make up some hand crafted cards and pouches to house them.

I really like this image from Stampin' Up!'s "Good Cheer" stamp set when it's combined with the background image from "Notably Ornate". I was a bit selective with my inking on the Santa image - the ink was applied to certain areas with a sponge as I was after only part of the image and I wanted it lighter than usual.  It was easy enough to just stamp off the Notably Ornate stamp and place it randomly on the card.

I can see I'm becoming a fan of Collage Stamping.

Colour used is Riding Hood Red from Stampin Up and the papers are from the "Love Letter" Designer Series Paper pack.

This card is for the following challenges:
Christmas Card - CHRISTMAS, optional monochromatic
Corrosive Challenges  (2 entries) - red and white
Crafty Hos' - any religious holiday
I Did It Creations - vintage christmas
Secret Crafter - christmas
Stamp Something - christmas colors
