Non-Traditional Christmas Colours - Vintage Style
It is time for the new challenge at Sugar Creek Hollow and this time we are calling it VINTAGE CHRISTMAS CARDS with a twist - NON-TRADITIONAL COLOURS.
This card was super simple to make and I think it is flat enough that it won't require extra postage. I started my card with some kraft card stock from Recollections and then added some patterned paper from Farm House Paper Company. I distressed the background (and everything else) with my scissors and inked the edges with some Vintage Photo Distress Ink from Ranger.
I added a panel of white corrugated cardboard from The Funkie Junkie Boutique and another panel made from Tim Holtz Color Core card stock that I embossed with an embossing folder called Budding Vine from Craft Concepts.
Next came some crochet lace from my sewing stash, a vintage image that was a freebie from Linda, The Funkie Junkie and a ticket from The Beary Scrap. I made a loopy bow from twine and topped it with another loopy bow made from seam binding dyed with Forest Moss Distress Ink. Finally I added some buttons from my stash.
