Holiday Greetings

The Holiday Greetings CMS353 stamp set from Tim Holtz and Stampers Anonymous  is a set of four vintage images that can make Christmas Card making a breeze.
First Cut the largest Stitched Oval out of Distress Watercolor paper so you can see where the images should be stamped. Then, using a classic Christmas stamp called Treeline CMS244 ink it up with Evergreen Bough Distress Ink, spritz it with water and stamp it so it has a watercolor effect. All the papers on this card are stamped and stenciled on Distress Watercolor Cardstock.
The striped piece was stenciled with the Mini Mint Shifter Stencil from Set #37 in Iced Spruce and Evergreen Bough Distress Ink using a Distress Blending Brushes.
The carriage with the Greetings sentiment is stamped over it with Black Soot Archival ink.
The large back mat was stenciled in Iced Spruce with the Mini Falling Stars stencil from Set #38 with a Blending Brush.

The last few touches were to machine stitch around the outside edge in whie and to tie a bow to attach to the left side of the oval.
