Cmas Card Challenge - Jan - Vintage Christmas

My first Christmas card of the 2011 challenge! The theme is Vintage so I found a nice St. Nick, printed it and then cut it round with my CM circle cutter. I cut the turquoise ornament with my Cricut with the Joy of the Season cartridge. I cut the silver layers (holder & ball at the bottom), glued them on along with the circle element. I smudged the edges with a Old Olive Green ink pad. I selected a coordinating layer of parchment cardstock for the background. I used the Victorian Cuttlebug embossing folder which fit with the theme very well to add texture to this layer. All this was mounted on a pea green card. I added a satin ribbon and turquoise snowflakes mounted with ivory brads.

I made 6 of these.
