Ye Olde English Christmas Card
The new challenge starts today at Frilly and Funkie and Nancy, our hostess this time is calling it Tis the Season.
"Create a vintage or shabby chic holiday themed project - whatever winter holiday you celebrate!"
I recently picked up the Graphic 45 paper pad from The Funkie Junkie Boutique called A Christmas Carol along with a smaller pad of coordinating papers so I decided to use them to make a card for this challenge and add it to my stash for this year. I must say that this went together pretty quickly with very few steps.
As always, time is running short so I know that soon I will be making a series of mass-produced cards. One of these days I will learn to start in January and set a monthly goal for myself - maybe in 2016.
I chose 4 papers and used one for a background, one for a panel and 2 for tags. All the papers and images have been inked with Vintage Photo Distress Ink. I dyed some seam binding with a mixture of Aged Mahogany and Fired Brick Distress Ink and added it to the top of one tag along with some fibre from my stash. I added a button with some burlap string to the other tag.
Then I set about fussy cutting two copies of the tickets in the upper left corner and popped them up with foam dots. The other images were all fussy cut and added. To finish off the card I added the mini poinsettias from my stash and some Kaisercraft green pearls.
I am going to enter this card in the following challenges:
A Snowflake's Promise - Anything Goes with a winter or Christmas theme
Artistic Inspirations - Anything Goes with a twist of Christmas
Get Creative Challenges - Holidays
Card and Scrap - Anything Goes
My Sheri Crafts - Christmas Spirit
The following products used in the creation of this card came from The Funkie Junkie Boutique:
