I know it's probably a little early to start posting the Christmas projects, but I just really loved the way these two turned out. I decided to make 2 different versions of the same card. One more vintage and traditional looking and one that was a little more playful. Nearly all the supplies used on these cards can be found at StampingScrapping.com For this first one, the vintage card, I used Basic Grey Wassail paper and the vintage Christmas flowersoft. I have to
admit I bought this stamp because I thought the wreath would be perfect for the flowersoft and I think it turned out really well. I colored the image with copic markers then I cut it out with labels 4 nestabilitie and chalked the edges with some shimmery gold chalk. I added the vintage christmsas flowersoft to the wreath. I went over the bright white lace with some distress ink to make it blend in more with the rest of the card and finished it off with some felt snowflakes. Here is a close up of the wreath so that you can see the texture of the flowersoft. It's very realistic looking.
This is my second version of the card, the more playful version. I used Cosmo Cricket's Jolly by Golly paper for this card. I used the same layout and image for the card. This time I colored the Tilda in brighter colors. I also used something different on the wreath this time. Here is a closerlook at the wreath. I used Irish Green sparkly fluff flock on the wreath this time so that it would coordinate better with the papers. This stuff is really cool. It is flock with a little sparkle thrown
in. It is hard to see the sparkle in the picture, but it's there. I also added some cotton candy flock to the trim and the pompom of her hat. This time I left the lace white and added a couple of flowers to finish off the card. I had a lot of fun with these cards and I'm excited to get a head start on my Christmas cards!
