Hi everyone! How about a christmas card with no stamping... well, sort of! I've been thinking of creating a card for some time now using vintage clip art and couldn't resist doing so once I saw this beautiful christmas image at ChristmasFiles.com. I paired it with a lovely sentiment from the Merry Mistletoe digital stamp set by Doodle Pantry.
My card base is Real Red layered with White Cardstock then Balsam Patterned Paper. The shadow layer is the back side of the Balsam Patterned Paper layered on Real Red. The clip art was printed on White Cardstock and also layered on Real Red. I printed the sentiment on White Cardstock then die cut and embossed it using the Grommet Tags Nestabilities and threaded a strip of Real Red Grosgrain Ribbon through the holes. To embellish the card I added tons of stitching, a matching bow made from Real Red Grosgrain Ribbon and some pearls near the sentiment.
Thanks for stopping by... hope you have a purr-fect day!
