Hello once again. Tina O with you here today with a little Christmas cheer.
I, as a rule do not do cards, but I felt as I should as we a coming into Christmas in only a few days time. With this in mind and the fact that it has been a long time since I have created a card, I have kept it pretty simple. I wanted to do something a little vintage with a shabby touch.
To create this card I started with a Kraft Cardstock base and cut a 23 x 10cm card base. The top of this was then layered with some Dusty Attic corrugated board. And on top of the corrugated I have used the new “I Wish” collection. Because I wanted a vintage feel I stayed with the rustic brown colours with the addition of cream and green. I tore section of both “Those memories will last” bs and also “You a happy New Year” bs. These would have to be my favourites pieces from the collection as you will remember I used them in a previous layout using the I Wish Collection.
The christmas leaves I have used for this project were dressed with some Walnut Gold glimmermist to take away the darkness of the green but also to add in a touch of gold.
I wrapped the corrugation with a large piece of twine and left it hanging to the side. Over the top of the twine I added in some Dusty Attic Baroque Chipboard to cover my knot which was embossed and sanded.
I have cut the postage stamp from the Ephemera Sheet and added it tucked above the cluster just peeping out.
I dry brushed my embellishments with white gesso to tone the card colours down a little and to keep within the shabby/ vintage style.
My title “Merry Christmas” was cut from the base strip of “I wish those memories would last”. These are always perfect for that little added addition to any card or layout. So don’t throw them away!!
