Every time that I receive a new Stampin' Up! catalog there are a few stamp sets or bundles that take my breath away.  Father Christmas is one of those sets.  I knew that it would definitely be on my preorder for the Holiday Catalog.

The Father Christmas image is stamped in Archival Black on Watercolor Paper because I used the Aqua Painter with a variety of Classic Inks.  

After watercoloring the image, I cut it out using an oval from Layering Ovals Framelits.  While I had the framelits out, I also cut a scallop oval from Very Vanilla Cardstock.  The cut out pieces will eventually be popped up with Stampin' Dimensionals.

The layer behind the colored image is Soft Suede C.S. & the images are stamped with Soft Suede Ink.  The tone-on-tone adds to the vintage feel of my card.  Stampin' Dimensionals will also pop this layer up after the next step.

A narrow strip of This Christmas Specialty Designer Series paper is adhered to the card base prior to adding the watercolored image layer.  In addition,  Real Red Candy Lane Baker's Twine is wrapped around the Soft Suede Layer & tied in a bow.
