Vintage Santa Images

I am totally loving all the Vintage Santa images that  you see in pattern papers this year.  Pink Paislee has totally out did themselves and I am in love with the Father Christmas line.  I paired the Father Christmas line with a clear acrylic star from Clear Scraps.

I love using all the different clear shapes that Clear Scraps makes.  I enjoying using them on my layouts and altered projects but most of all I love using them as the focal point of my cards.  Today I am showcasing Clear Scraps "Small Stars" which are great for any project no matter what theme or event your working on.   I love to ink them up and emboss them to make them stand out more on projects.

Here is my card showcasing the Clear Scraps Small Stars
