A visit with Father Christmas! Vintage Christmas Card (ADFD)

Hi everyone!

Hope you're all well and had a nice Xmas! (And no I didn't before you

I'm extremely poorly at the moment but managed to slowly make this vintage Christmas card! I'm really loving vintage and red for Xmas right now and just had to get this fabulous image from A Day For Daisies!

I used:

Coloured with Promarkers & Flexmarkers
Dovecraft - North Pole Papers
Ribbon - Crafty Ribbons
2mm 3mm & 4mm pearls - Hobbycraft
Gold bell from stash

The little tickets were cut from the paper pack
I lightly distressed the papers and coloured round the edge of the image with my Promarkers to make it look vintage

Thanks for visiting! Have a lovely week!

    Your vintage style card is gorgeous...I have used these papers a lot this year as I really love them...probably a good job I got 2 packs so lots left for next year - lol!
    The clean layered design is lovely and the generous white space around the image really makes it stand out beautifully.
