The TPC Studio stamp set was a gift several years ago. This image I'd never used & it's one of my 2 stamps containing a stocking. Teresa Collins Vintage Finds sheet of paper (got for a few cents when a store closed) was still lying near my table. In this case I'm glad I hadn't gotten it put away--how's that for justification?! Anyway, I stamped & embossed the image on the paper using Versafine Vintage Sepia. The textured paper gives it this look. I distressed the edges & then sponged with Distress Ink frayed burlap. I added a bit of fired brick around the stockings, bundled sage over the tree & victorian velvet around the girl. A yellow gel pen was used on the candle flames & the star is covered with Champagne Stickles. The left side of the card front is covered with the same beautiful paper & the right side is dry embossed with a Cuttlebug folder.
Button & a twine bow finish it off. What do you think? I seldom go for a vintage look, but this was fun to put together for the Merry Monday challenge.
The temp is up to 34 degrees, so I know the snow is melting even though there's so much we can't tell it yet. Hubby had cabin fever & actually drove the 4 wheel drive vehicle to the store--even though we didn't need anything! I was happy to stay home making my card. Hope you're enjoying the weekend--whatever you do.
