Vintage Christmas, Part 2

I am continuing to add to my Christmas card stash...I have never started this early!  I picked out this stamp because it reminded me of flocked wallpaper...that's vintage, isn't it?  This is for the Merry Monday Vintage Christmas Card challenge.

I stamped and embossed the image in gold on watercolor paper.  It was watercolored with Distress Ink Reinkers (Aged Mahogany, Pine Needles, Peeled Paint, Rusty Hinge, and Wild Honey.)

The image was edged with gold...all it needed was a layer and a sentiment to call it done!

Stamps:  Stampendous Poinsettia Background, JustRite  Elegant Christmas Swirls.

Thanks for taking a look!


  1. Irene, this is a stunning creation! Love that technique! Thanks so much for playing with us at Merry Monday!

  2. Oh, this is so elegant and "flocked" wallpaper is definitely vintage :-) Love the gold and the watercoloring with the Distress Inks- gorgeous!

  3. Irene, Your card is so very elegant. The shading of your water-coloring is beautiful against the gold embossing.

  4. Another beautiful vintage card, Irene! Thanks for sharing another vintage card with us at Merry Monday!

  5. Love the technique you used! I have never watercolored a gold embossed image. Will absolutely try it now! Super job!!

  6. Your card is lovely. Beautiful colours. I've never started this early either but I'm finding it easier as the weeks go on and am happy with my small stash.
