Vintage Santa

The current challenge at Jungle Belles is Spirit of Christmas Past so they want cards with a vintage feel about them. For me, Vintage Christmas always conjures up images of Victorian times, so I used papers from the 2013 Christmas Special issue of Making Cards, called Victorian Christmas. The images and papers are also available on Joanna Sheen's Victorian Christmas CD-ROM.

To add to the vintage feel, I've added lace, ribbon and doilies, and introduced some gold into the layering.
