Vintage Christmas

Hello everyone! I am sharing a card that I have made which follows the latest sketch from The Sweet Stop.

I was drawn to the vintage image of this paper and wanted to feature it in some way. I decided to use it in one of the paper panels.
I cut apart a die template to use as part of my floral cluster in the corner. It was too big but adds a little whimsy to the card.
My main focal image was stamped and then embossed using a distress ink, just to give it an aged look. I added a bow to finish it off. It's not a fussy card, just a simple one!


Stamps: JustRite Stampers Merry and Bright

Ink: Distress ink old paper, Stampin' Up! real red

Paper: Stampin' Up! real red, old olive and very vanilla, Kaisercraft 6 1/2" paper pad Turtle Dove

Other: Spellbinders nestabilities 2010 heirloom ornaments and standard circles small, Memeory Box Quinn flourish, Hooked on Craft flower, red ribbon and Becca's Bow maker.

Thanks for stopping by!
