12 Weeks of Christmas - Week 3

This is the card that we made at our stamp club this last weekend. It's not your average Christmas card and I must admit that I CASED this card from Renee Fenlason who sent me a similar card as part of a Vintage Christmas Card swap that I hosted. I thought this would be the perfect card to showcase to my club as I knew that most of them had purchased this set and I wanted to encourage them to get creative, especially if they have limited supplies. I won't go into every step to make this card, but I will give the general details of it. Every layer is sponged around the edges including the designer series paper. We used the markers to color the stamp and stamped it on Very Vanilla card stock. We then ran it through the Big shot with the Square Lattice embossing folder. To make it look aged I used the Tea Stain ink spot from the distressing kit and sponged this to make the white look aged. And last but not least we added the Vintage Brad for the finishing touch, and spitzed the entire card with gold Glow Smooch Spritz. I  think the key to this card and all the little details such as the sponging, it just gives it that vintage look which I absolutely love!
