It's "Anything Goes" at Christmas Card Challenges this week and I'm entering this Christmas card to their challenge.
I started with a corrugated kraft card base from Michael's. The vintage image is from a decoupage book I bought several years ago: Alphabets and Ornaments by Anna Corba. So I dusted it off and found this image to use on my card. I thought that copper paper would be a good color to complement the image, so I pulled out a piece of brushed metallic copper paper and used a Martha Stewart border punch on the right edge. I used Old Paper distress ink and rubbed it over the entire image to soften the bright white paper it was printed on. I distressed the edges and curled two of the corners inward. The image panel was popped up with dimensionals. Before adhering the image I wrapped two kinds of lace trim around the front of the card. Then I pulled out some paper roses I had in my stash and made an arrangement with colors to complement the image. The stems were curled around a paint brush handle for fun. Distress Stickles was added to the petals of the flowers. The sentiment is from A Muse Artstamps and was inked with black StazOn.
For the inside of the card I used more brushed copper paper which was border punched. A layer of ivory card stock was sponged with Old Paper ink and the corners were punched with a punch that coordinates with the border punch.
Thanks for looking!
Off to create some more!
