Vintage Christmas

I have opted for a vintage Christmas card this week for my DT piece for Artistic Outpost using the fabulous Snowy Woods plate.
This is definitely one of my favourite focal images for Christmas this year, wonderful details and such a traditional feel to it. I have combined the image with the Postage Stamp Frame, colouring with brushed corduroy Distress Ink and spritzing with solar gold Luminarte Radiant Rain shimmering mist.
I have also used the aperture from the die cutting to frame my image, embossing the frame to add wonderful texture.
The sentiment has been stamped onto a piece of calico adding a Christmas Muse Token for added interest and depth.
Dimensional poinsettias have been added to the bottom corner adding buttons to the centre.
I have also added the focal image to the inside of my card.

Thanks so much for stopping by.
