Everything old is new again

Shiny Santa

This year we are recycling Christmas. Old cards are being turned into new ones and we are taking a real low key approach to everything. No tree even -- we're letting the relatives do that bit for us this year.

This card is made from 2 other cards one with a gold background, one with a shiny embossed red background. The image in the center is stamped and watercolored with distress inks. The words were added t6o cover the doll Santa is holding the coloring went all wrong there -- orange-red not a good skin color. That's the great thing about creating something like this. It's completely savable.
