A very vintage Christmas from the NEW Debbi Moore Vintage Christmas CD
Hello and welcome to my Blog :-)
This is a DT card for Fat Cat's Card Corner using the new Debbi Moore CD range of printable images. This particular image (the centre panel, ie: the Church) is from the Vintage Christmas CD and there are 100 images for you to play with. Now I have to say that I LOVE Vintage cards but haven't really made them until this card - I've had all the tools and I have a little collection of Vintage-style Christmas dp's and embellies, but wasn't quite sure what to do. So what better way to start, than to jump in the deep end - plus it was easy starting with an image that I didn't HAVE to colour - the job was already done LOL!!
There are instructions on the CD on how to print the images - you don't need any fancy software. I printed the image out onto white cardstock using my Canon printer on the "highest" quality. Easy peasy!
The designer paper is by Webster's pages Holiday Collection Combo pack 6" x 6" pad which I bought last year. I literally squealed with delight when I saw that the same colours on a lot of the Vintage images on the CD match this Webster paper pad perfectly even down to the aqua roof on the Church! A match made in heaven!
I distressed each layer with a blending tool and Antique Linen distress ink. The main image panel is up on 1mm mounts (dimensionals) as is the sentiment circle. The sentiment is from a retired Stampin' Up set called 'Riveting'.
I added some fine red glitter to the berries on the designer paper. The poinsettias have a sparkly star brad in the centre and were glued on using Crafter's Pick Incredibly Tacky glue (LOVE this stuff!!). I sprayed the whole card with Gold Glimmer Mist which adds a lovely subtle sparkle.
I did a very simple card inside:
I used my Labels 1 Nesties to diecut the cream cardstock sentiment panel to match the same shape as on the designer paper on the card front, then heavily distressed it with Antique Linen ink. As you can see, I need a bit more practice with distressing so I don't get any hard edges! The sentiment is from a gorgeous set by Waltzingmouse Stamps called 'Very Vintage Christmas'. Waltzingmouse Stamps are based in Ireland and post worldwide. The decorative border was made with a Martha Stewart Arch Lattice edge punch - there is a score line just above the border which I made with a Martha Stewart Scoring board.
Check out the other Debbi Moore CD's at Fat Cat's Card Corner. There is a large range to suit your taste - from Silhouette to Oriental, to Art Deco to Sepia, Men's & Boys, Cats, Vintage Flowers and more! Plus there are also Debbi Moore stamp sets.
Thanks again for stopping by! Have a great weekend!
