New Kaboodle Doodles Challenge - Vintage!

There's a new challenge on the Kaboodle Doodles blog today - make it vintage! Our sponsor Stamp-n-Doodle generously gave the dt some images to play with. Here's my card:


Card base is Close to Cocoa, that wonderful soft brown now retired by SU, that is stamped with the Very Vintage wheel in Early Espresso. I took my image and edited it to be sepia toned in my graphics software, sponged the edges with EE and mounted it on a distressed panel of Chocolate Chip. The sentiment is from a freebie set from Cutting Cafe that I edited to be sepia toned, sponged the edges and mounted on a distressed panel of Chocolate Chip. I added a little gold bling and viola a funky, vintage Christmas card.

Thanks for visiting!

Hi Chris it is lovely to hear from you thank you so much for visiting me. I must edit my posting as the snowman is from Wink, Wink, Wink. I was downloading my files to their respective folders and that is when I noticed it came from them. I do love this card Chris the colour is awesome, I love the sepia tone always reminds me of the vintage era which I love so much. I must have a go at this myself.
