One of the style of cards that I dearly love is vintage simple. This is a name I give to vintage cards that are not too over the top with too many frou-frou embellishments and details. At Christmas, vintage Santas are one of my favorite images. I have been collecting them in a file on my computer, but have never used one. I decided this was the year that I had to try my hand at a card featuring a vintage Santa. I love to frame vintage pictures, and I decided that would be what I would do with my lovely old guy! Here is how my vintage Santa card evolved.
