Last night I sat down and decided I need to start my Christmas cards. What to do, what to do, I have some new Santa stamps from Stubby Stampers, and the new stash I bought last year.....hmmmm. Then I remembered some vintage post cards that had been in my Grandmother's album when I was putting her info on the Family Tree. So I got them out and scanned them into the PC. This one has always been my favorite. The original is almost a 5x8, but I printed 3x5 and trimmed the edges. I mounted it on a darker blue background paper I had made years ago, then onto an embossed snowflake, then a mirrored silver. The card I stamped a snowflake in a Pearlescent Sky Blue, before putting all the layers onto it. I added a powder blue ribbon down the side. Using the same pearlescent ink I stamped the sentiment, trimmed it small enough to add to the corner. Powder blue pearls accent the middle of the flowers on the card, the center of the grunge flower I made and the flourish. I bought those pearls a year ago thinking baby cards, but they were all born girls....LOL A couple of snow flakes in the upper corner finished it off.
Stamps: Inkadinka do
