Today's card was created with the Santa Express Designer Series Paper.  This paper reminds me of a vintage Christmas ~ maybe it was supposed to, maybe that's just me...

This designer paper is so bright, colorful and playful. Just perfect for creating Christmas cards. Images from the paper can also be fussy cut to use as a focal image on the card front. 
There is a coordinating bundle for this paper ~ Santa Express Suite Collection, or you can use it with your favorite Christmas Stamp set!
