Vintage Christmas Postage Santa

I have a collection of Postage "stamps"  (pardon the pun!) that I love!  I have combined four of them here on this card.  I love vintage.  I think it's so nice how it can seem shabby and worn yet still have a sparkle and elegance to it. 

I've entered this card in the following challenges...

Stamp and Create ~Christmas or Holiday card 
Scrap-Creations anything goes

Card makings:
Stamps: Inkadinkado, Hero Arts
Sizzix flourish red die
Martha Stewart Border punch
Spellbinders label dies
plastic snowflake
Fabric flower
glitter leaves from a Christmas spray

Hello Renee
Please let me introduce myself, I am Susan from New Zealand. I hopped over to your blog after viewing your card on the
"I did it creations challenge."
Your design is wonderful, your choice of papers and embellishments give the card a unique vintage appeal, I love the postage stamp too. Good Luck. My Tag is in the challenge.
I have become a follower as I will take any inspiration I can get hold off.
I hope we will become friends I will call in often.
