Afternoon everyone - here I am with another DT card for the Christmas Cards All Year Round challenge. I have a little confession here - Christmas cards are my absolute favourites, I just lurve making them. It must be the glitter, the snow, the snowflakes, robins, holly, poinsettias ...... etc etc. What's not to like??
Anyway our theme this month is 'vintage', which is another great pick .. and it's never, ever too early to start on your Christmas creations!
I used a rubber stamp from La Blanche for this card - I've had it for years and it's a great one for this type of theme. My papers are from My Minds Eye and they are truly gorgeous, quite vintage looking and distressed too!!! I chose three papers and put one of the three inside the card. I piled a few 'flakes on top of each other for the embellishments, I cut these out of white coated Core'dinations card then sanded off the white to reveal the core colour underneath. I inked the edges of the image and them popped some embossing ink around the edge before dipping in gold embossing powder - love this effect.
