Santa Season: Day 5

For today's card, I tried out a vintage Santa image from The Queen's Dresser Drawers! I love this one as it says "Yes, Virginia, there is a Santa Claus" in beautiful lettering embedded in the image. Of course, with the effect I used with it, only half the sentiment showed up but it seems to still work!

Play Date Cafe is doing "PDCC58: Rich Red and Fresh White" this week and I wanted to get in on the fun.

I was mulling over the color scheme and I thought what's whiter than bleach? So, I used a reverse bleaching technique that I had played around with a couple of years ago. I didn't consult any blogs when I came up with it but that by no means that someone else didn't think of it too. So far, I haven't seen any other techniques like it. To see how I did it, visit my tutorial on Gingersnap Creations. It's really easy!

Virginia & Santa
Stamps: main image (Queen's Dresser Drawers); snowflake (Stampington)
Cardstock: Whisper White and Real Red (Stampin Up)
Ink: Versamark; Real Red (Stampin Up)
Tools: iron; heat tool
Other: bleach; cotton swab

Here's wishing you find something magical to believe in this week!
