Santa's Card

For the current Just Buggin challenge, we needed to alter our die cuts with ink. I decided to take the stocking card and make it look a little more vintage. I did this with the help of some distress ink and a stipple brush. Brushing the ink on gives it a much more subtle look than applying the

ink directly to the die cuts. I brushed it all over everything so that everything that was white would have a sepia look to it making the card look old and vintage. The stocking is cut from Christmas Cheer and the holly is from Winter Woodland. The sentiment is from the new nestie friendly stamp sets. I actually stamped this on white paper colored with my E33 copic marker to make it blend more with the vintage feel of the card. My daughter liked this card so much, she decided to leave it for Santa. You can see the note she left to him on the inside.

Hi Mindy,
What a beautiful vintage card, you did a great job making in look antique.
I'm sure Santa loved the card and the personal message.
