Calendar Page for December


This is a calendar page I designed using a bunch of Red Rubber Designs' new Christmas stamps as well as paper from their Catelynne collection.


I started by stamping text (Vintage Santa) repeatedly in the background.  Then I embossed over that in white various images from A Gift for you, Snowflakes,  Holiday Wreath, Joy & Peace.
I stamped Santa (Vintage Santa) on pink paper and used him as my focal point.  I added part of the sentiment from Peace on Earth.
A few chipboard pieces for embellishment and a little sparkle and that was it!
The colors from this paper collection were a bit different than I'd usually use for a Christmas piece, but I thought it came together very nicely.

Here's the new Vintage Santa set from RRD with the text and Santa image I used.  Love this set!
