Vintage Christmas

Okey, I know that some of you don't want to be reminded of the big day yet. But here we go...youngest son said I could you use the layout for any occasion, just change the sentiment and the tags. The sentiment says "A Happy Christmas and A Happy New year from all of us to all of you" in Swedish.

Challenges:
Craft Stamper: Embossing resist
Cute Card Thursday: Pretty Papers
Everybody Art Challenge: Swirl
Simon Says Stamp: Clear (embossing powder and clear pearl)
ABC Christmas Challenge: N for Numbers, check the tag

Isn't this photo nice? I wish that all of them looked like this one!

Materials used:
Penny Black corner swirl stamped with embossing ink and embossed with fine clear powder on white cardstock.
The same procedure with the sentiment, can't remember the make.
The cardstock was coloured with different Distress inks, and stamped with Penny Black notes, some Perfect Pearl splatters and mist were added. Then a gentle swipe with a cloth to remove ink from the embossed areas.

MME Bella Bella design paper, Cuttlebug corner and tag dies, silver cardstock, Itsy Bitsy flower, ribbon from a top and silver thread from Mum's fiancé. The use the silver thread for fish lures, works well on cards too, hehe.

Thank you so much for visiting, hope you'll have a splendid day with some crafting. I'll take oldest son on a shopping spree, while the rest of the family plays computer games, they wont even notice we're away for a moment. I'll pay you some visits tonight, when I have a cuppa in front of me.


Warm hugs
Maarit
