Vintage Christmas


Today's card is made for the challenge over at Sugar Creek Hollow with the theme being "Anything Vintage Goes."  It has to be shabby or vintage, which is my favorite kind of card to make.

I used some wonderful textured paper which almost feels like fabric and distressed it around the edges.  The stamps are from Inspired By Stamping and include Vintage Postcards Add On I, Holiday Sentiments and Beautiful Ovals

I love those darling little postcard add ons, they so often add a sweet little touch to paper projects, and these were heat embossed with gold metallic embossing powder.

To add some texture I used Scallop Border Crochet Trim and Poinsettias, also from the IBS store.

A little stitching and some gold dew drops finish the front of the card.

I used another sentiment from the Holiday Sentiments set on the inside as well as one of the tiny stamps from the Holiday Tags set.  I got a little carried away, but who doesn't like candy canes anyway?  Even the words "candy cane" are sweet and happy.

Thank you so much for joining me and I wish you a lovely day full of crafting goodness.  And candy canes.  (It's never too early.)

Happy crafting!

I love it! The paper has a proper distressed vintage feel, and the way you did up the sentiment to coordinate is beautiful.
