Vintage Christmas

Good morning friends~ I've got a card to go along with a challenge at 52 (Christmas) Card Throwdown where the theme is:

When I fist saw this set "Kitsch Christmas" from Avery Elle, I fell completely head over heels in love with it.  These deer are so darling and are totally vintage!


I heat embossed the star snowflakes from the set in white on a white background and then added distress inks in Antique paper, Tattered Rose and Abandoned coral.  I flicked the panels with a bit of water and then sprayed the entire panel with a white shimmer spray that I made myself.

The deer are colored using copics with white gel pen details.  I added a thick coating of Glossy Accents to the big red bow.

The sentiments included in the set have a wonderfully vintage font as well.  These cards have lots of shine.  I hope I captured the look of vintage with these two cards.
I'll also be adding one of these cards to the following challenges:
Simon Says Wednesday Challenge ~ Christmas Critters
Word Art Wednesday ~ Anything Goes
Tic Tag Toe Challenge ~ Scene, Dimension & Texture

Thanks so much for stopping by!  Blessings~ Birgit

  10. You definitely captured the vintage look, Birgit. I had to read the post to find out this was a stamp and not a digital image -- your coloring is that perfect. Love the shine on your bow and the background. You put a lot of effort into these beautiful cards and it shows. Happy Thanksgiving!
