Noel Card

Noel Card

Card Positioning Systems is celebrating their 5th Anniversary by releasing a sketch a day for 15 days.

This card is my interpretation of the day ten sketch.

I have used Webster's Pages paper as the background paper, December Journal.  I purchased it as a digital download, so I was able to resize it as I saw fit, so I made it fit a 6" x 6" card.  I love the versatility of digital papers.

The "postcard" stamp along the edge there is by Tim Holtz, inked with Vintage Photo Distress Ink, and the vintage Santa is a Bo Bunny acrylic stamp inked with StazOn Black on vellum.  A liberal shading with Vintage Photo has been done around most of the edges.

The wooden word NOEL I picked up during the post Christmas sales this year.  I painted it with Burnt Umber acrylic paint and sanded it back to distress it, then lightly inked the edges with Versa-color gold ink.

  1. What a beautiful card. I love the browns and how you mixed the vellum into it. I really love how beautiful this is without coloring the main image...that Santa is fabulous!
