Waltzingmouse Dec Release - Preview Day #2

Welcome friends to Day 2 of the Dec Waltzingmouse Release Previews!  Today the Design Team is using a fun set Claire has designed called Vintage Post Cards.  I was inspired by the set to become Santa's helper and make some little post cards to send to my Grand Nephews and Nieces on Santa's behalf!
The Santa postage stamp in the corner and the post card design are stamps from Vintage Post Cards.  The sentiment stamps (in red and green) are from an older WMS set called Santa's Coming To Town.  I die cut the little postcards using the Gift Card It die - that just happen to fit this post card stamp perfectly!! (there are larger stamps in the Post Card set too) These little cards measure 3 3/8" x 2 1/8".
I stamped the ornament stamp from Santa's Coming to Town on the back of the postcard and then sponged all the edges with Vintage Photo Distress Ink.
Then I die cut envelopes using the Gift Card It Envelope die - stamping with more stamps from Santa's Coming Town (the Santa heads in this set match the Santa Head on the postage stamp in the Vintage Post Cards set -  Claire is SO clever coordinating her sets!)  I sponged all these edges too -  and slipped the post cards inside!  I think the kiddies will be excited and surprised to get these little postcards from Santa in the mail!
I'm entering my little Santa cards in the Addicted to Stamps and More Challenge - Holiday
