Neutral Santa

Sunday, December 2, 2012

A very busy Sunday today working on more crafts and photos.  And as I post, watching the UNC Tarheel women's soccer team play in the NCAA Championship Soccer Game against Penn State.  Currently with just 14 minutes to go, UNC is up 4 goals to 1!  Love my Carolina Blues!

Now, to just as important business --- my card!  LOL!  I used another one of my old world Santa stamps from Stamper's Anonymous to make a shabby vintage old world Christmas card for The Shabby Tea Room challenge and Moxie Fab's Tuesday Trigger.  My inspiration came from the neutral theme and those gorgeous lacey frames from the Moxie Fab inspiration photo.  I've had these lacy frames for YEARS and I think I've used maybe one of them.  They came in a set of probably 4 or 5.  Perfect!

I don't remember what my DP paper is and you can barely see it underneath the damask embossing but it's there.  I used the tea dye distress ink to ink the edges of the card and of the scallop die.   I wanted to keep this simple with just a few elegant embellishments.  I had this Santa brad forever too!  The white berries are from a sprig I used in some wine bottles sprayed white and rolled in fake snow.  I have to rally those bottles out for Christmas decor yet.

Stamps:  Santa postcard stamp(Tim Holtz Stampers Anonymous).
Paper:  DP from stash.  Cream cardstock.
Ink:  Vintage sepia (Versamark).  Tea Dye distress ink (Ranger Ink).
Extras:  Lace frame; Damask emboss folder (Cuttlebug); scallop oval die (Spellbinders); tan prima flowers; cream silk flower; santa brad; white berries.
