Sugar Creek Hollow is to use a winter stamp. This Season's Greetings sentiment from Sugar Creek Hollow made me think Victorian Christmas and since I hadn't used it before I really wanted to work with it.
After I had finished this card, we were given the opportunity to use a very special new image called Baby Jesus with a lovely sentiment scroll to go with it. Regrettably I didn't have time to make a card with these fantastic images but most of the other designers did use Baby Jesus on their cards so have a look at their work and be prepared to be blown away. These two new images are available today in the Sugar Creek Hollow store.
Now a bit about my card - I found the vintage postcard online and inked the edges of it and the edges of the stamp with Vintage Photo distress ink. The light standard has been coloured with Prismacolor pencil crayons. The Poinsettia was made from two different sized Creatables dies from Marianne Designs using my Cuttlebug. The embossed veins were brushed with gold and copper ink from Martha Stewart and then I added some large copper seed beads leftover from the days when I was decorating bathing suits for my daughter to wear in her synchronized swimming competitions. A bit of crocheted lace, some pearl stickers and some pleated satin ribbon finished it off.
