Vintage Santa

I wanted to try and make some Vintage cards because I see so many gorgeous cards out there in blog land! Well I thought this Christmas stamp set would be a good place to start. Boy...trying to make something look old is so hard! I need a lot of practice...but it will be fun! Anyway...This is my first attempt and it's for these 3 Challenges:
Allsorts-Tag, Ticket or Label
Saturday Spotlight- 'Mess Around' using some type of distressing
Susie & Vikki's Christmas Club-Holly
I stamped my image and tag with Ranger Jet Black ink. Added a little color with watercolor pencils. I gently roughed up the edges with sandpaper and then lightly inked them. The lace and holly berries were in my stash...and there you have it! Thank you for stopping by!

Hi Tammy

I think your card looks wonderful.

Your tag is great - I love the holly along the bottom edge. For me that just sets everything off beautifully.

Your lace is a great touch and looks lovely too.

Thank you for playing along with my challenge at Allsorts this week.

Love Jules xx
