Vintagey shabby Christmas Postcard







I've decided I way prefer my old style of shabby chic card making over the CAS look because I NEED to faff and fiddle so was in my happy place whilst making this Christmas Card.

I made up a vintage looking postcard by stamping elements from the Christmas Postcard Clear Stamp set from Whimsy Stamps on to a piece of the patterened paper I was using (I think it's either old Pion or Maja that I used for this card, probably a mixture of both IIRC)

Then I stamped on the pine cone image in distress ink and added a touch of Artiza brush markers to add a bit of colour.  And then ... I hit it with some Distress Glitter because ... Bling!




I made the poinsettia from 160 gsm white paper that I coloured with oil pastels before shaping.  I used the Lily Flower Die for this, but the petals are die cut in sets of 3 so I just did a bit of trimming and rearranging to get 5 petals for each layer and voila, a 5 petal poinsettia.  I love getting more out of my dies.  I die cut some foliage in different shades of blue and some white using the Christmas Branch Die Set and finished off with some white berries and more glitter.




I added a sentiment from the Christmas Memories Clear Stamps which I heat embossed on to black card.  I wasn't too sure about the black at first, but ended up liking the pop it gives.
