Warmest Wishes

I'm not usually one for adding posts at this unearthly hour of the night but I kept forgetting to take a photo and then once I had taken the photo forgot to download it. The morning will be the usual rush around for school and I knew I must get this done before bedtime or it will be too late for the challenge at this rate and I really do enjoy this one when I get time to join in.

My card is for the Penny Black Saturday Challenge where you must stamp onto anything but white card. I am somewhat behind with the Christmas cards and decided to use my Fantasy stamp to make another Christmas card.  I used some kraft type card that I bought from the Papermill Shop a little while ago and thought I would use red and green shades as these are usual Christmassy colours.

Started off using my Hero Arts Old Letter Writing stamp and stamped it in Peeled Paint Distress ink in 3 places. Then stamped the Fantasy image in Barn Door distress ink.

Also used the Barn Door ink to give the edges around the card a distressed look.
 Used some bright red ribbon and added some snowflakes punched out from the kraft card with one of my Tonic punches and coloured with the Peeled Paint ink again.

Added loads of red self adhesive gems to finish and stamped a Hero Arts greeting from my Holiday Sayings set.

The card has a true vintage look and feel and I was really pleased at how well the colours go together. Phew! Another one done.

Thanks for looking.
