LET'S SCRAP - A NEW CHALLENGE!

This week's sketch at Let's Scrap is a double page layout (you can choose either the double page or either page) to create for this challenge :

I chose the left hand pge and flipped it a quarter turn to the left to create this vintage Christmas card:



I used free vintage Christmage images, printed them onto textured (cream) Bazzil cardstock and sprayed them with clear aerosol lacquer to give them an 'olde' look.  They were matted onto red-brown shimmer CS.

The card base is the shimmer re-brown CS, and over that I have striped DP and a scrap of Christmas themed DP.

The flag behind the images is also a scrap of  Christmas DP.

The embellishement is a flower, diecut CS holly leaves and flourishes.  I sewed on some beads by hand.

  2. Your Christmas card looks as though it's emerged directly from the 1800's Jen. Your treatment of your images has made them stand out so beautifully and the addition of the flower spray - complete with hand sewn-on beads is such a pretty finishing touch. Good luck in our challenge this week. Ingrid xx (OSAAT Team)
