Vintage Christmas card


At Christmas Stampin All Year Long - this weeks challenge was to go Vintage.
The image is from Google, the embossing on the base card was sanded (Cuttlebug folder) the sentiment is a stamp from Inkadinkado.
The lace is from a spool I had from Jo-Ann's and the buttons are truly vintage. Take a look at the two on the right - those are wooden buttons. (I even left the vintage thread in one of them) I got them in a yard sale last year.
I am entering this in at CSAYL and Sunday Sketch and Stamp

Such a fabulous creation - I like how you crinkled and inked the image. I did the same on mine as I thought that was a vintage look. And how cool about your buttons. Thanks so much for joining us at CSAYL this week - you did an awesome job with the challenge!
