Non-traditional Santa

I have made a card that I think is very non traditional AND it includes Santa too.
I have used the Sweater Weather DSP with the hexagon punch as an embellishment down the side of my card- I think of this paper as jumpers and Autumn - both of which are a LONG way away from our HOT Christmas here in Australia!!  I have also used By the Tide stamp set (which I love) and which is not really a christmas stamp set, along with the postcard!!  The Santa comes from the Best of Christmas stamp set - and he looks great in the place for the stamp on the postcard.  I have also used the Rotary date stamp, and my favourite Christmas greeting from Delightful Dozen. Finally I've used my comfort colours - neutrals for a vintage look......... now that I think about it, this could be a VERY old traditional design..... whoops, maybe I need to rethink?
The hexagons are very non- traditional.......

I hope you like my take on the challenges - I certainly had fun putting this one together!!! 


  1. Love your non-traditional vintage with a twist Santa post card!! Great job with combining all of the elements- love the use of the Sweater Weather and By the Tide sets. Thanks for playing along with us at SUO Challenges :-)

  2. Hi Julia, sorry you had trouble with the linky, if you could please retry and see how it goes...:0) It would be a shame not to have this in our gallery.
    Love the collage postcard stamping and the earthy rustic punches...a lovely vintage style!
