WAXED SANTA

I was looking through my 'scrap' drawer and found some alcohol inked backgrounds I made last year. The one I used here was quite dark as I used a little too much black, but it was perfect for this vintage print.
Because I used the second to last big card that Sonia gave me, and it has a wavy edge, I thought I should round the corners of the inked matt. Can I find my corner rounder anywhere? I've no idea where it is so I used a circle punch and got an inverted look instead.
The reindeers are Tim's from his reindeer flight die. I managed to cut some whole ones and some part ones from the music paper I had. The part one looks ok behind. However, I've just found a massive A3 sheet of music paper that I had completely forgotten about. That big clearout is now way overdue.
The ribbon matches too and is sticky backed. I reverted to my latest fave technique - wax - to stick the image to the matt. I left santa without a covering and added distress stickles to his clothes instead. A bit of rock candy stickles on the snow finished it off.
I'm just going to attempt another with the last of the big cards, that's if my bad back holds out! Must have twisted it in the night because I got up with it this morning. Oh well!
