I love Vintage, and Vintage Christmas is even better. When I think of Vintage I think of deep, muted greens, cranberry, pearls and doves. (Not to mention Tim Holtz).

This beautiful digi is by Stef at Gliterbabes, (Badge to the right). It was a Freebie since she made 200 followers at CDAC. Congrats Stef!!!!! It is called Fun Dove. I created this tag with the New Seasonal Inks by Tim Holtz. I then took his tissue paper, sprayed it with Peppermint Stick and Mel's Diner Glimmer mist. Once dried I crumble the paper to make it look more vintage. The dove was done with Tim Holtz Distress Stickles Rock Candy, once dried I added Diamond stickles, with a touch of Black Soot distressing.

My ribbon is seam binding that I sprayed with Glimmer Mist, same colors to match my paper, then I crumbled it up in a ball, once dried I now have my wrinkle ribbon. stamps are "Vintage Christmas". Pearls are from stash, and so is the fine fern that I added over my Olive Branch. I love it!!!!!

I don't think I ever did a white on white card, my favorite combo is black but this turned out really well. I LOVE! my Memory Box dies. this is the Catalina Wreath. My greatest frustration is that in my area they are so hard to find, and once found thy sell out so quickly.

This entire card was made with my Solar White Cardstock, I used my swiss dot embossing folder, and corner rounder. The digi is by Nina at Paper Cupcakes, (Badge to the right) Its called Wildflower Bouquet. Both of the ribbons were colored with my Copics and I added Diamond Stickles to the flower centers. Button from stash.

Not alot of time to play this weekend. I was down at U of I for my daughter iceskating banquet and then her first competition.
