For my card today I used the new MFT Stamps Inspired By Christmas stamp set, I am loving this stamping set! I have used 4 MFT Die-namics on the front of my card these are:

After stamping the Santa image onto the oval shape I sponged the edges using Old Paper Distress Ink. I have also distressed the edges of all the layers of paper using a distressing tool.

Here is the inside of my card. I stamped the sleigh directly onto the designer paper. For my sentiment I cut the Believe off the beginning of the sentiment and used that on the front and then stamped the remainder of the sentiment on the inside which is stamped onto the Die-namics Clearly Sentimental Label die.
