Santa On His Way

Ho ho ho! It's getting close to the time when Santa comes for a visit, and this week, the Stampendous Design Team is focusing on just that. Our theme for the week is "Santa Claus is Coming to Town." My card for today features the Santa's On His Way stamp, which has a wonderful vintage feel. I need to apologize, for some reason, I only have 1 photo of this card. The snow in the background is chock full of Multi-Crystal Glitter Mix, but you'll have to take my word for it. Below are the instructions on how to recreate this card.
