Easy and Fun Olde Tyme Christmas Card to wow your friends and family! Stamping, tearing & sponging is all it takes to make this beautiful card!
Today I am sharing with you an Olde Tyme Christmas Card! This handmade card uses the NEW stamp set from Stampin’ Up! called Snow Wonder. This will wow your friends and family! First, when stamped the image has a lot of hash marks and that, to me, looks like it is an Old Fashioned drawing. Second I tried to emboss it with white and see what it looked like…..not so great! The hash marks made it all bunch up and it had no definition.
As a result, I then tried it in Early Espresso and WOW that looked so good! Colored the carrot, hat and scarf with my Stampin’ Blends, using light colors. As long as I used light colors it didn’t take away from the Olde Tyme Christmas look. Since I was making it look older I tore the paper (after stamping everything else) and sponged Early Espresso on the edges!
Since I colored the scarf with Bashful Blue, I thought pulling in that color would be pretty on the ribbon in the corners. So, I colored the ribbon with a Bashful Blue Dark Blend, popped up the image on a piece I stamped with Buffalo Check and wrapped it on the corners. In the same vein, did you notice that I used an antique slide on the ribbon at the top?! I think that added a more Olde Tyme feel to it! To sum up, for the base I used more of the Bashful Blue to pull it all together! What do you think?
