Christmas card/tag



Hello there, a Christmas card today with a vintage feel.  I started off with Kraft Cardstock and used a lovely vintage themed paper pad, BoBunny Silver & Gold Collection.  I matted the paper on cream cardstock, added another strip across the centre of the card to make a pocket.  I Made a small tag with the Merry Christmas sentiment embossed in gold to place in the pocket.  The image is Sherri Baldy's My Bestie 324 and I coloured her with Spectrum Noir pens and added Glossy Accents to the earrings and necklace.  I matted the image on the designer paper and added to the card with foam pads.  I placed a spray of gypsophila and red rosebuds with a poinsettia from Wild Orchid Crafts at the bottom left of the card and gold star stickers on the other corners.
