I equate "rustic" with "vintage", so that's the direction my card took me this week, and when I think "vintage", I think of Flourishes Santa I Believe stamp set. Here's what I came up with:
This is probably my all time favorite Santa stamp and I inked him up in Soft Suede ink on Rustic White (PTI) cardstock, and then blended TH Walnut Stain ink all over the image. I used some Bo Bunny DSP and photo corners (PTI Mix & Matt: Herringbone die) on my card and also added a Poppystamps Giovanna Snowflake die cut (stained with the Walnut Ink and lightly embossed with gold).
