52CCT - Sketch ....

.... Morning all!  I finally managed to get into my craft room yesterday afternoon to make today's card.  As it's the first Saturday of the month, that means it's our sketch challenge at 52 {Christmas} Card Throwdown.  Our host this month is Julie and she's got a really nice sketch for us - you can flip or rotate the sketch and add any embellishments you like.  Here's my take:

Stamps: Stampin' Up! - Delightful Decorations; Winnie & Walter - Winter Wonderland
Inks: Versafine - Onyx Black, Olympia Green, Crimson Red; Versamark
Dies: Lil Inkers - Dual Stitched Squares #3
Accessories: White Lustre Card; Kaisercraft DP - Christmas paper (FOC with Simply Cards & Papercraft); Gold Tinsel Embossing Powder; SU Punch - Christmas Ornament; Martha Stewart - Christmas Ornaments Border Punch

I used some lovely vintage style papers as the basis of my design - great colours and I think the snippet of Christmas newspaper is super.  I stamped the Christmas bauble in Versmark and embossed with Gold Tinsel powder - it has a lovely shimmer - and cut it out with the matching punch.  Sadly, both the punch and stamp set are discontinued.  On the inside of the card I cut a mat layer of design paper and added a greeting to the white panel.

Super job capturing the vintage feel for this card! All the elements work together so nicely - the background paper, the embossed ornament, the "newspaper" image, the punched border.
