Post Card Santa Redux

In this previous post the card was aged by sponging all the edges of the layers. For this card I kept it clean but added more layers. The Santa image was stamped on very vanilla card stock (1 7/8" x 2 7/8") with basic brown ink, colored with SU markers, highlighted with a sakura glitter pen, frosted lace stickles and crystal effects. The image was adhered to real red card stock (2" x 3") and old olive card stock (2 1/8" x 3 1/8"). The sentiments from the Winter Post set were stamped using real red ink on very vanilla card stock (3 7/8" x 5 1/8") and the snowflake from the same set were stamped using old olive ink that was off-stamped to create a softer image. The sentiment from the Merry stamp set was using real red ink over the snowflake image. The stamped layer was adhered to real red card stock (4" x 5 1/4") then old olive card stock (4 1/8" x 5 3/8"). A red snowflake from felt flurries was added to the layers in the upper right corner with a green rhinestone brad and then adhered to the very vanilla card base (4 1/4" x 5 1/2"). The Santa layered image was added to complete the card.
