It is October 2...and a new challenge at Crafting Musketeers. The challenge this month is my all time favorite card type: Christmas!
I thought the focus of the card should be the Merry Christmas postcard stamp by Inkadinkado- which is available at Michaels. I stamped the image with Ranger archival ink and then applied TH antique linen distress ink on the entire image. Vintage photo and walnut stain was also added along the edges. The tree scene was colored using TH distress markers. Stickles in Candy Cane was applied on the Merry Christmas. I distressed the edges and mounted it on black card stock. I die cut red paper using the exquisite Spellbinders die Locking Loops. I added black gems in each of the interlocking loops. All of that was mounted on green card stock. To finish the outside I added the dark red bow with a Recollections antique metal flower with a gem in the center.
The inside was easy: white paper stamped with JustRite's Christmas Inner Thoughts. Distress stains in antique linen, vintage photo and walnut stain were applied as shown.
Thanks so much for stopping by! I hope to see your Christmas Creation at the Crafting Musketeers this month!
