Vintage Christmas

Yesterday I started another card for the Make My Monday challenge as I wasn't that happy with my first entry. This time I've tried the vintage style ( way out of my comfort zone, but the more you do I suppose the better you feel about it?)

I'll also be sending it to St Lukes charity where their theme this month is Christmas.

I've used 3 papers that I'd downloaded years ago from I cant remember where.......a holly print, Hark the Herald Angels music sheet, and vintage christmas angels ( I hope they forgive me for cutting their wings off?! ) .The holly was placed on a cream card base and the edges sponged. A square was torn from the music sheet and red sponged on the edges, and then some fluffy threads were wrapped around it before it was layered on the holly. The 2 children were cut out and stuck down and then the whole thing was sponged with a distress ink. The sentiment banner was added on 3D pads with a bow of the threads dangeling behind it with jingle bells on the ends.

Recipe: Card = from my stash
Inks =  Real Red, Certainly Celery, and Tim Holtz Tea Dye
Stamps = Dovecraft
Extras = Fluffy threads and jingle bells

It's a Grand Prix weekend so I hope I'll get some crafting done.

Thanks for dropping by, and I'd love it if you could call again if you have time.
