I bought the stamp at the urging of my husband while in Vegas at the viva las vegas store. he loves Santa's. simply stamped added a little color to his cheeks. sponged the outside then added the holly leaves on this card I punched little red circles for the berries but on another card I used stickle paint and really liked that. I also added a greeting on on ther sample. On this sample which you can't see well I added some liquid glass on the glasses.
