Vintage ChristmasPosted: October 9, 2012
My stack of Christmas cards is growing and the latest I’ve added is this vintage style one. Brown is not a typical “Christmas colour” but I like the warm look of chocolate brown ink on ivory or cream cardstock. I created the patterned strip using the Diamond background stamp and sponged around the edges. A strip of designer paper would work just as well but sometimes it is fun to make your own. The bauble is stamped in Memento Rich Cocoa, then sponged in the centre with Memento Rhubarb stalk before being cut out. It is not obvious in the photo but I embossed the whole bauble in clear embossing powder which gives it a shiny glaze then popped it up on dimensional tape.
