A Couple of Vintage Santa CAS cards

I made a couple of quick CAS (clean and simple) cards to get in the mail, using the Crafty Secrets Vintage Santas digital images we were given for entering last month's linky party.

In photoshop elements, I altered the black and white image to sepia and then printed it on beige cardstock.  I originally was going for a kraft and red theme but after it printed out, I knew that brown frame was a perfect match for Stampin' Up Early Expresso cardstock.  The hubby likes unadorned cards for easy mailing at the post office.  I think these fit the bill, yet look rich and elegant.

Thanks to Crafty Secrets for the monthly link up party that gives us the opportunity to acquire amazing digital images for personal use.  The December Linky Party is HERE

I'm also sharing this at Unruly Paper Arts 12 Days of Christmas Link Up party.  I can't believe we already at day 12!  It's been great fun visiting blogs and sharing our art.
