A Vintage Christmas Card

This is my final blog post of the year for Visible Image so I am sharing a traditional style vintage Christmas card on kraft card using the stunning Poinsettia Grunge and Christmas Robin stamp sets. 

This design is perfect for batch making, which is actually what I have done as I needed 5 cards to go with some little treat boxes I have made for a local company of carers to deliver to some of their elderly clients on Christmas day in hampers they are making up. 

I stamped the images using a stamp platform on kraft card. 

I then used Distress watercolour pencils to colour the holly and flower as the colour pallet is perfect for that vintage feel I was hoping to achieve. 

I finished by doodling a border, adding some white highlights and gold pain splatters before mounting on gold card stock.

I really hope that the recipients enjoy their little hand made treat and it makes them smile this Christmas. 

I will be back in the new year with more inspiration for you, but in the mean time why not check out the social media links below to see what the rest of the team and Visible Image fans have been creating. 

Have a wonderful Christmas!
