Vintage Christmas

More of a vintage feel to my Christmas card this week using the fabulous Snowy Woods from Artistic Outpost.
My background has been created using Distress Stains antiqued bronze and tarnished brass, adding a wonderful sheen to my background. I applied the stains to a non-stick craft sheet, spritzed with water and mopped up the beads of ink with my card.
For added dimension I have included a snowflake rosette cut from kraft card adding a little colour with vintage photo ink, placing rusty stars to the top for further interest.  I added the sentiment also from the Snowy Woods plate to a banner also cut from kraft card.

Thanks so much for stopping by.
