Merriment with our Vintage Santa

Here's a little card that I sent as a Christmas card. It's one of my favorite Tim Holtz stamps cause it has so many cool retro images and they have it at Retro Cafe Art. This project is all about my fav artist Tim. You'll see many of the products I used were designed by him.

I started with a RCA ATC frame , that I cut and then covered it with Tim Holtz Tidings tissue tape. Neat stuff! I rubbed it with a silver ink pad then highlighted with blue ink and silver Stickles. Tim's stamped Holiday image was colored in and rosy red cheeks were added, of course. A merriment muse token was rubbed with silver ink and tied to the frame for dimension. The silver card is wrapped with sparklie fiber then the ATC is glued on top. I think the blue fiber has a vintage feel too.

Hope you are feeling nostalgic this holiday season.
take care, gerri
