Merry Christmas and Happy New Year

Oh those delightful Christmas Overlay CMS357 stamps! I used them in two ways on this card and paired (there's that word again! LOL) them with the Music background stamp from Music & Advert CMS358 to make a card with a traditional Chrismas feel.
I started with stamping the wreath in Black Archival and watercoloring it with Distress Markers. Then I stamped the sentiment in Black archival and them in clear embossing with gold embossing powder.
The frame I made just by stamping the music in Black Soot Archival and adding Antique Linen.  I died some seam binding with Festive Berries.
The large background is stamped with the holly stamp from the Christmas Overlay in Black Soot Archival and then water colored with Distress Markers.  I completed the card by sewing around the edges with gold metallic thread.

So perfect...I just love the vintage style! Thank you so much for the inspiration. I’m new at this, and struggle with making a decision on how to pull things together. You’re tempting me to pull out my sewing machine to try the stitching part...but, I think I’ll wait until I’m not on a time crunch to get my cards finished and in the mail. Such a beautiful card!

All the cards you posted are so perfect for the season! I love the way the wreath and sentiment fits perfectly in the frame. You are such a wealth of creativity and the best part is you make it look like those of us who are not professionals could achieve the "look." I like that there are different styles in the posted cards. Thanks, Tami
