Christmas Cards all Year Round May

This month at Christmas Cards all Year Round the challenge is vintage. My card uses patterned paper by Pink Paislee. I inked the edges with green distress ink and kept the Santa uncovered because he looks vintagy. The sentiment stamp is by Stamp N Plus which I heat embossed with platinum embossing powder and Versa Mark ink. I did all of that onto Strathmore watercolor cardstock. I inked the watercolor paper very heavily and then sprayed it generously with water mixed with Perfect Pearls. Last I adhered my sentiment to the card. Easy Peasy!



Thanks for looking.
