Vintage Christmas Card
Thank you for stopping by! I hope you will enjoy today's post! Big warm hugs to the new blog buddies, it's so great to have such talented souls close by! Thanks for joining me here!
A fly-by post today as I am in the middle of cooking and looking after two menacing hungry birdies. :)
I have a vintage Christmas card for you today! I made this card a while back, but had to wait to show it to you in case it got picked to be featured in a magazine. I haven't heard back so I guess they didn't like my grungy vintage Christmas card enough :) Well, I hope you will...
The entire card was made using Tim Holtz Distress Inks including the coloured Tiddly Inks image. The embossed banner is a coordinating folder that came with these gorgeous stamps in the Quick Cards magazine. Thank you, Quick Cards! Love these stamps, they are adorable!
I did a lot of sponging, sanding, die cutting and colouring, then sanding and distressing more. It wouldn't be a Christmas card without any sparkle so I used the gorgeous Sand coloured glitter frosting paste by GlitzCraft (to me it is a perfect toned down vintage gold colour of glitter, my favourite so far!!). I also used their stencil that came with the gorgeous MDF Stencil Kit. I added some distressed dyed ribbon and a piece of burlap from a tote that I didn't particular like :) A few double sided strips, staples etc... you get the idea!
The poinsettia is handmade by moi! I hope you like it ;) This is my first Christmas card for 2014! I'm sure you'll see many more in due course ;)
I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges:
A Little Bit Crafty - distress it!
Try It on Tuesday - recycle it! (my burlap comes from an ugly sainsbury's tote :))
Crafty Creations - Vintage
Have a fabulous weekend! Hugs,
