Vintage Christmas Wishes

Here is a card I made for 5 challenges.

Atlantic Hearts Sketch
Sunday Stamps - colors
Heart 2 heart - Christmas
Double Trouble - Christmas and fancy fold
Pile It On - Vintage/Retro and Warm Wishes

I thought the color challenge went well with the Yuletide Carol paper pack. I just left out the red and green and added the Peacock cardstock. I inked the edges in Colonial White to give it a distressed look. The sentiment piece was inked in Desert Sand. I added a ton of embellishments to complete the vintage look.

The fold is not very fancy. I just added a flap so that when I finish the card at Christmas time, depending on who I give it to, I can do a little peek-a-boo thing inside.

Materials used:
Cardstock: Peacock, Colonial White
B&Ts: Yuletide Carol
Stamps: Scandinavian Wishes
Ink: Peacock, Colonial White, Desert Sand
Other: Fundamentals Assortment Peacock, Wooden Mini Medleys, Frosted Assortment, Yuletide Carol Assortment
