Season's Greetings


I've gone all vintagey with this card and love the way it turned out.

I started with a Rich Razzleberry card base and teamed it with Old Olive.  One of my favourite combos.  The Very Vanilla background is embossed with Vintage Wallpaper and sponged with Crumb Cake, Old Olive and Rich Razzleberry.  Then mounted onto Old Olive card stock with the edges distressed using my paper snips.  The middle panel is Rich Razzleberry with Old Olive repeatedly stamped with the wreath from Welcome Christmas.  Again the edges were distressed with paper snips.  I wrapped some stripey ribbon and attached my sentiment onto it.

Oooh isn't Christmas getting closer!! Hope it's all coming together for you and not too stressful. x

I'm entering this card into The Friday Mashup which is to create a project using chipboard or distressing or mash it up and do both.

Supplies all Stampin' Up! unless otherwise stated

Card - Rich Razzleberry, Very Vanilla, Old Olive
Ink - Rich Razzleberry, Old Olive, Crumb Cake
Stamps - Welcome Christmas
Other - Vintage Wallpaper Embossing Folder, Rich Razzleberry stripey Ribbon
