Santa Collage Stamp - Rubber Stampede

Christmas hand made cards are made very easy with the Santa Collage rubber stamp by Rubber Stampede, I believe it is still hard to get hold of but I know that Krafty at Krafts in the US has it for sale, I've had mine 2 years now and it is still one of my favorite Christmas stamps.
I inked the stamp with Versafine Toffee a new colour out and stamped it onto cream card stock, I used stickles glitter glue to give it some sparkle then mounted it onto a Nestablities Label cut from old gold coloured card stock.
I then used the same ink to stamp up the flourish stamp from the Silent night stamp set by Papertrey Ink and stamped onto a cream tent fold A6 card and again added glitter.
I used different snowflake craft punches to punch shapes from the gold card then add glitter to them and layered then up, Don't they just pop?
I layered all of the pieces together and finished with a satin ribbon.


A closer view of the snowflake, as you can see the glitter doesn't need to be perfect to become effective. Ialso added a gold stone to the center of mine.

I have this stamp too Jak and I love it. If I ever get round to making my own Christmas cards it will come out again too.

I've had this stamp for two or three years Jak, but stamping isn't my first love so it has sat in a box and only been used once or twice, lol!! 2009 has to be the year that I see if I can get into stamping. Lovely card, lovely colours, another "grown up" card.
