Work of love, I just love the way this card turned out, the pp already had the holy and that sort of distressed peach tone background, so I just distressed the paper and distressed inked it with vintage photo from Tim Holtz and added a cut out of a gift box, the letters and the little banner with the words. For the "piece of resistance" I stuck the Santa cut out behind the top layer and ripped part of the paper in that section so you could see some of his body. I've seen this done alot in layouts and thought, why not in cards as well. Must say the Santa was the hit of the card, lol.
TIP, if you want to give the feeling of depth to a page or card, when you put on cut outs or stickers off center them and take them out of the edges or borders into other parts of the design, makes the background sort of recede, like here with the gift box and the tag of 25.
Thanks for looking, bye!!!
