Deep Red Stamps Joy Card

I have a new card to share today featuring a new Deep Red stamp. The Santa Claus ticket can be found at A Cherry On Top. It comes in a set of four vintage tickets and is fun for an accent or can be used as the focal image.  For this card I used it as an accent to my vintage Christmas card. I stamped it on white cardstock using Hero Arts black ink ad then cut it out leaving space along the margins. Then I colored it in with distress markers and used Antique Linen distress ink to change the color of the tag from white to off white. Then I took a pair of decorative scissors and rubbed them across the edges of the stamp to distress the edges.

For the rest of my card I used Bo Bunny patterned paper for the base and Echo Park for the lacy border. The ribbon is truly vintage, I found it within my husbands grandmother's sewing stuff. The die cuts were cut out from my Cricut except the small leaves were a punch. 

The top layer of the Christmas tree was cut with white paper and then I altered it to give the tree dimension. First off the tree is two pieces for the top piece I ran it through my Cuttlebug with a Christmas embossing folder. Then I made it the green color it is with distress inks. The label it is on was also enhanced with distree inks.

For the holly leaves, they are die cuts from Cricut using Making Memories green patterned paper. Then I scored them using my Fiskars paper trimmer. I inked the edges with a little bit of Forest Moss distress ink. Then I used foam adhesive under the middle of the leaf to adhere it to my paper. The pearls were paink and I used a Copic marker to make them red. 

Thanks for looking.
