Winter Post

As I had put most of my Christmas challenge cards up for sale, I had to make more to send out to friends. Time was at a premium so I used lots of ideas from other people. This card was based on a lovely tag made by Linda at the Funkie Junkie. I did not have all that she had used but just substituted and am happy enough with the result.

The heart at the top was die cut from crinoline, then embossed around the edges with gold embossing powder as are the fine lines on the strip at the bottom, the holly leaves which I cut free hand,the frame for the circle wording and both wordings. Edges were sponged with Distress ink and the bow was coloured with the same DI. Under the strip of Crinoline is Music Tape from Tim Holtz.

Stamps: SU Winter Post, Greetings of the Season
Card: SU Very Vanilla
Ink: Vintage Photo Distress Ink, Versamark
Other: Judikins Egytian Gold Embossing Powder, SU gold embossing powder, seam binding, crinoline, SU embossing folder

Happy Christmas all!
