Vintage Xmas



Made this card for a dear friend...

I snipped a V-Shape into the cardstock and snipped off the opposite corner and distressed the edges.

I used my Penny Black swirl stamp with Versafine Ink to make the border at the top, added this gorgeous thick adhesive lace which I found and forgot I had!! (Siigh!! Again)

The paper is from 7 Gypsies - beautiful design! I used my Nesties to die cut the scallop circle and the lace circle is from my lovely friend Sabina which I believe is actually a tablecloth, so I snipped a circle off!! The images and tag are all from my stash and came with a Vintage card magazine, distressed the edges, added buttons, brads and flowers to finish - Phew!!
