I have something a little different today. I had a request for a Christmas card with an "antique" look. This is what I designed.
Three layers of card stock were attached to the front of this 6x6 inch card. The edges of the two top layers were distressed. Using a stamp from the Joset Designs Winter Sentiments stamp set, light snowflakes were stamped on the top beige card stock and the edges sponged with Tea Dye Distress Ink.
The Els van de Burgt Studio Holly Flourish was die cut, out of Kraft card stock, shaped with Susan's Flower Tool Kit, then Viva Inka Gold Metallic added. Red berries were added with a red embellisher.
Using Susan's Garden Notes Poinsettia and Garden Notes Small Poinsettia die sets, two flowers were created out of Kraft Card stock. (Real poinsettia do not come in this color.) They were shaped with Susan's Flower Tool Kit then also edged with the Inka Gold.
Using Susan's Garden Notes Whitepine Boughs & Pinecone die set, a few ivory pines were die cut and three pine cones made.
The A Way With Words Merry Christmas 2 die set was used for the sentiment. It was die cut twice using a thin cardboard. The two pieces were glued together for dimension.
The Flowers were attached as shown adding a thin gold cording under the lower edge of the large poinsettia.
I hope this card has the feel of an "antique look"!
