Vintage Christmas

Christmas is so wonderful. We usually think of bright crisp colors for this holiday. But some of the most beautiful cards I have seen are vintage style.
Phindy’s Place has beautiful images and when I saw Popcorn and Cranberries I knew it was the one for this card.
The image was distressed using Tim Holtz ink, adding the feeling of aged. This was also done to the background and base card.
For embellishment I added some holly leafs, a string of vintage beads and a bow.

I am entering this card in the following challenges:



  1. Cute image love the ribbon wonderful christmas card.
