Anjillic's Christmas in July Challege

OMG I cannot even believe I just made a Christmas card. I do not work well off season! LOL now here I am in July making Christmas cards. This was made for a challenge, a very generous challenge, on the Anjillic Creations blog. All the details are here. Go now, you could win a PTI gift certificate, but hurry it ends on July 31st!
Card Deets: I used PTI's Believe Stamp set to stamp the Santa and sentiments. I stamped him on the Mat Stack 3. I masked him out and stamped the tintype background behind him. On the red base I used the line stamp from Background basics retro. All stamping was done in dark chocolate, except the lines. I used versamark for those. I colored the Santa with copic markers.

I really love this card. I am so glad you found something else to use with the Mat Stack #3. I love the tin type stamped behind the Santa and you colored him so nicely with the copics. Great Christmas in July card.

Awesome job with the masking! I love the Tin Types background behind the Santa - it just wouldn't be as dynamic without it.
