Vintage Christmas Card

This card was put together by accident, LOL!!!

I was playing around with a tutorial for using a MS border punch as "trim" around the outside of the design, either circle or oval. I had an oval in red that I hadn't used, and a 12 inch piece of green card stock scrap. I thought, oh well, this is just for practice, who cares about the colors. Well, this is what I came up with using my "practice" piece.

The stamp set is from Rubber Stamp Tapestry called "Noel". I have quite a few of their sets, and they are really fun to work with. The DP is from Penny Black, poinsettia from Prima, and the branches are another MS punch. I chalked around the image before I took it out of my nestie to give it a softer look.

Thanks for stopping by and sharing your comments!

What can I say, Deb - this is a simply "elegant" card -- and a great start on your holiday creations! Now, if only all my "accidents" would turn out as beautiful - lol.
