Vintage Santa Step Card

    Visit my blog often enough and you will begin to see that I love Step Cards and 3-D projects.  While perusing Pinterest recently I came across a card with this new shape I hadn't seen.  Her picture tutorial was nice, but it seemed to me a lot of paper was wasted in her, I went to my handy dandy Silhouette Cameo and drew out a background to use.  This machine comes in soooo handy.  I not only now have this style of card ready to cut when I want -- I can also cut out my layered pieces to the correct proportions as well.  Often using scraps and laying them out for one run through.  Now that's efficiency.
   Vintage cards are usually not my style - but around Christmas time these images always appeal to me.  I have several post cards that were my Grandmothers, as well as some other images, that date back to around 1903 - 1912. I have made cards and ornaments from copies of several of them over the years.  This paper by K & C from last years holiday stash seemed perfect for this image.  The card when flat fits in an A6 envelope.  
     After making this one I decided to start another one - the next is going to have lots of glitter to make it a little more vintage looking - I'm thinking it will be very nice looking.  If I have a chance I'll try and post it.
Thanks for stopping by
