Christmas card for a man...

...or boy is what the folks at "Winter Wonderland" asked for.

I decided to go for a vintage looking image as I wanted a male card that wasn't cute or comical. I know this wooden stamp of a traditional Santa was part of a DoCrafts Christmas promotion but I'm not sure if it was last year or the year before.
The base card is Kraft CS and I've kept things fairly simple both colourwise and as far as embellishments go. Some simple matting and a piece of Christmas red crystal ribbon.
You can see that I kept to a fairly limited colour selection for the image too. I tried to use my Copics to create a more vintagy (is that a word?) look without making any of the colours too bold.

Hope you like.....................
