Hello Everyone! I have another Christmas Card to share with you today. This one has a bit of a vintagey feel to it. I used some old My Mind's Eye papers which are really beautiful.I love the rich reds and golds and muted greens.
The focal point on my card is a Chalkboard effect panel made using an Indoigo Blu stamp I used last year on a Magazine Commission. It is still available here. I heat embossed it on to Black card with matt white embossing powder. It is not perfect but that is the look I was going for. I also distressed the edges of the panel before adding it to the card. I added some poinsettia die cuts from Tattered lace to the top left of the image with gold stick on pearls in the middle of each flower.
I wrapped my card layers in hessian ribbon from The Ribbon Girl and pleated ribbon before adding them to the card base. I added a bow tied with luxurious satin ribbon which I topped with a sparkly button. I tucked a little Martha Stewart punched holly leaf under the button and finished with more stick on pearls. I am off to do some Christmas Shopping in Reading with my Mum this morning. Wish me luck! Have a great Saturday.
