I love making cards that have plenty of panels in them. There's loads of room to extend a theme. Here, I've used a number of vintage images of Father Christmas from Tim Holtz' Seasonal Paper Stash on a background decorated with lots of inking, stamping and Perfect Pearls.
"Close-up of panel"
There are some little tickets inserted behind the images so that I can put secret messages in this card. The wooden embellishments were free with a magazine last year and I have decorated them by sponging with a little distress ink.
"The other side"
The other side of this card has more Santa images with some diecuts.
"Front of card"
Finally, here's what the card looks like from the front. There are ties on both sides to keep it closed. Please join in with our challenge at Stamping Sensations, and you'll have a chance to win a super prize from "Stamp Addicts". Also, I hope you'll join me on Tuesday for this week's "Tuesday Technique" which is a tutorial on how to make this card. Ciao!
