Spotlight Technique With Saint Nicholas

A little vintage to showcase the Spotlight Technique With Saint Nicholas. I love vintage, and this amazing Saint Nicholas stamp set is a great choice for creating vintage cards. 

Many times, we think we have to stamp the full image of a stamp and if it is a detailed stamp that we need to color. Well, this spotlight technique is a perfect example of how we can stamp just a portion of a stamp without adding any coloring and create an amazing card.

Spotlight Technique With Saint Nicholas

I love the spotlight of this Santa. The sponging with Pebbled Path on the edge of the circle gives an old-fashioned look to the card. 


  • Smoky Slate: 8-½x 5-½ score at 4-¼.
  • Pebbled Path 4 x 5-¼, 2-⅜ circle.
  • All About Autumn: 5-⅛ x 3-⅞
  • Very Vanilla: 4 x 5-¼, 2” Circle.
  • Pebbled Path Texture Ribbon: 6’ and 4”


  1. Stamp Saint Nicholas using black ink on the Very Vanilla 2” circle.
  2. Sponge the edge using a sponge dauber with Pebbled Path ink.
  3. Adhere to the Pebbled Path circle.
  4. Stamp the greeting at the bottom right of the All About Autumn designer paper using black ink.
  5. Adhere to the Pebbled Path card stock.
  6. About in the center of both layers, adhere the 6” ribbon.
  7. Adhere all to card front.
  8. Adhere the circles using dimensionals and then tie the 4” ribbon on the ribbon to the hand-right side.
  9. Stamp Saint Nicholas at the bottom left side of the Very Vanilla and adhere inside.

Inside the card is another example that partial stamping is okay.
