Vintage Christmas



The challenge this week at Cheery Lynn Designs is Vintage.  I chose to make a vintage Christmas card using the beautiful  Celtic Chain Rectangle Reflections dies.  One of the dies fits perfectly on a 5x7 card.  I added Vintage Photo Distress ink for a more vintage feel.  I used my  Zig-Zag Ric Rac die for the border pieces.

To create the flower I used the new Rose Leaf Strip, look at all the beautiful detail on the petals!  I added some center stamens from the Embellishment #2 die set.  The final step was to add the lovely pine from the new Wreath Strip die.  The DP is from the Graphic 45 Nutcracker Sweet 8x8 paper pad.  Finished size is 5 x 7 inches.
