Santas little helper

Santa's Little helper is a card I made with Pion papers and at first I had the idea I was never going to use brown paper for a Christmas card. But then I decided to do it in vintage style and now I kind of love it. For the stamp I used little Edwin as Santa's helper

Magnolia EDWIN ON CHRISTMAS EVE Rubber Stamp Sweet Dreams 2011

 and kept the colors also a bit vintage and coordinated with the brown paper. For the first time I used UTEE, ultra thick enamel powder (as seen in the tutorial on this blog). Fun to do and I like the result.

The flowers I did with a new die from Die Namics. You can make flowers (roses) and also pine- or fir cone with this die.
After all I don't regret to have played with the dark brown paper and here you can see the result:


Shopping list for this card:

Bazzill white for the base
Pion patterned paper for the rest and also for the roses.

Die Namics die for the roses
Cheery Linn dies for the leaves

A bit of white acrylic paint  Fleur
Pearls and twine from my stash.

Hope you like it and thanks for visiting!
