Going Vintage for WCMD

Today is World Card Making day (there are links and info on my Thursday post) and I decided to step out of my comfort zone and make a vintage style Holiday card.  I also decided to enter this into the PTI Make-it-Monday challenge since I used this week's technique of making your own chipboard embellishment.

I used cereal boxes to cut several layers with the Christmas Tree die and used Vintage Cream CS for the top layer.  I stamped several lines from the Music Sheet background stamp and then assembled my "chipboard" using a glue stick. When it was dry, I sprayed with adhesive and covered the whole tree with glitter.

I used glimmer mist to color the Wilton doily to a complimentary color.  I also ran the greeting through the Linen impression plate to add a more distressed feel and I sponged the edges of all the cardstock with ink.

I love how the tree looks and it was a lot of fun to make.  I know I will be using this technique often.

Products Used:
Stamp Sets - PTI Background Basics: Sheet Music and Signature Christmas
Paper- PTI Pure Poppy and Vintage Cream; Patterned paper from Melissa Frances Home for the Holidays
Ink - PTI Dark Chocolate and Tea Dye duo
Wilton doily
Glimmer mist
PTI Christmas Die, Linen impression plate, Pure Poppy buttons and Rustic Cream twine
Martha Stewart seam binding
