Merry Monday #70

Good morning! I am guest designing for the Merry Monday Challenge Blog this month! Which means you get to see a Christmas card each Monday in August...using a fantastic sketch! 

Here is the sketch for this week:

This sketch was a bit tricky, but I pulled out a bit of this and that from my stash and came up with a card that sort of walks the line between vintage and trendy!
I stamped the Graphic 45 Santa image and die cut it with a fancy oval die. The paper piercing is part of the die! I used some chalk ink to give it some dimension.

The sentiment stamp is one of my designs. {insert giddy giggling here}  This card is pretty simple and fairly flat for mailing!
