An Old Fashioned Vintage Christmas Card

This week at Hand Stamped Stamped Sentiments we have a theme challenge.  Create any paper craft project with an old fashion Christmas theme.  Looking through my stash I found some gold heart doilies and since recently I received the Hearts Collection Framelits Dies I was inspired!  Perfect combo!

I used one of my favorite Christmas vintage stamp sets, Bells and Boughs.  I stamped the poinsettia image on Very Vanilla with Versamark and heat embossed it in gold.  I then die cut it using the heart die.  It was so easy!  The image is colored with a blender pen and ink pads and sponged with Soft Suede.  I cut holly leaves in Always Artichoke and Old Olive using the Large Oval punch and 3/4″ circle punch to cut the sides.  I used a stylus to score the leaf veins.

The berries are cut from Red Glimmer paper with the 1/2″ circle punch.  So sparkly!  I love this paper.  I definitely need to get some more for Valentine’s.   The small circles at the corners and on the sentiments were cut with the Owl Builder punch.

I hope you’re inspired to join us this week at Hand Stamped Sentiments.
