Vintage Santa - MOJO355


When better to start your Christmas cards, than July!  If I keep this up, I may actually have mine ready to mail early, instead of scrambling at the last minute to get them out the door!

Inspired by the Mojo Monday Sketch Challenge, I created my Mixed Media card using one of my favorite images from the Artistic Outpost Snowy Woods plate. I stamped the image in Black Archival on a scrap of Authentique pattern paper, die cut the panel with Spellbinders Circle Dies, then sponged the edges with Ranger Gathered Twigs Distress Ink to age the panel.  Wanting to add a bit more aging, I applied Ranger Crackle paint, and sprinkled on some Dry Glitter for added sparkle.




The papers from the Authentique paper pad, where a bit bright for my vintage card, so I applied Gesso to a Snowflake Stencil, once dry, I embossed the panel with a Snowflake Embossing Folder, and sponged the raised area with Gathered Twigs Distress Inks.  Again, wanting to age the panels further, I applied Crackle Paint and Dry Glitter.

To embellish, I die cut the fishtail panels using the ODBD Custom Pennants Die from Black card stock and scraps of pattern paper, adhered Black Ribbon with Twine accented with a Poinsettia, and the added the Black scallop border using the ODBD Custom Beautiful Borders Dies.
