Season's Greetings


I saw the colors for the Embellish Magazine Challenge and I knew I had to make a card using those colors and play along. The second component to their challenge is to make it a Holiday Theme Card.

The colors are Pink, Red, Green, and Brown! Love it!

I used tone on tone stamping with Pink Pirouette to randomly create a background image with various snowflakes from several different stamp sets. I love mixing and matching sets. Two sets are from Stampin' UP! and one is from Wilson Designs - Snowy Wishes. I distressed my edges with Vintage Tea Stain ink. I then used my Cricut to cut my center image and stamped a musical background image from Timeless Textures from Skipping Stones Designs. I also distressed this to give it a old time Vintage feel!

Again using my Cricut to cut and shadow my Season's Greeting sentiment, I chose to use green and red so it would stand out, and I placed it onto the musical focal point. 

I wanted some darling mittens to add to this Holiday card, so I cut those out and adhered them together and added a button! Adding some beautiful green ribbon for balance and some buttons as a finishing touch. This completes this little vintage holiday greeting!

I am also playing along with Pals Paper Arts - Clean & Simple, Diecuts Dreams Christmas - Anything Goes Christmas, Frosted Designs - Distressing, Our Daily Bread - Holiday, One Stitch at a Time - Chose your Theme or Holiday - Christmas, Alota Rubber Stamps - Let's Celebrate, Simon Stamp  & Show - Whatever Makes You Happy- Mittens and Christmas :-).
Hope you have a great day!
