Hi my second post today is a very vintage christmas card.
I was invited to be a Guest Designer this week for the
Christmas Stampin' All Year Long challenge.
I won the challenge a few weeks ago with my file purse and card set, and this was my prize.
The GDT badge has been burning a hole in my email box just waiting to be displayed, so whoopee I can wear it with pride today.
When the lovely Maria said the challenge was very vintage I thought... I don't do vintage, but I must say I really enjoyed trying it. Still need loads of practice!!!
So here is my card
Just some plain black cardstock distressed with the TH tool.
DP is by Magenta from Whichcraftuk the link is on my side bar.
The santa stamp is by Rubber Stampede, I used Versmark ink and copper detail embossing powder.
It was difficult to photo because the detail on the stamp was lost when it was shinny. The edges have been coloured with a gold Pen-Touch marker.
The distressing was already on the DP.
Ribbon from stash and embossed sentiment.
Photos don't do justice but you get the idea.
So if you want to get a head for Christmas why not give it a try.
It's well worth checking out for some wonderful inspiration from the design team,
and Maria has some fabulous tutorials too.
Thanks for taking the time to call by, have a great weekend
Love Cherie //*.*\\
