vintage christmas

morning all,

ok, I have to something to confess, I'm off work today and I've made a card already when I really should be ironing. Hands up, I'm guilty! The ironing basket sits here in my little craft room and it is haunting me, I have to get it done. :( But, priorities first, this is a little vintage Christmas card I made with a few scraps laying about on my table and my new Papermania Signature Collection stamp which I just adore, I love all things shabby at the moment and would love to polish up my shabby skills if that's not a contradiction!!!! The red patterned paper is from Pink Petticoat, a scrap left over from a card I made last night. I mounted it up on some cream cardstock which I have really come to love recently and cut a little border using my Martha Stewart doilie lace punch (love it). The punch detail in the corner was made using my Carla Craft corner punch. The little greeting stamp came free with the latest edition of Papercraft Inspirations, finished off with a little sparkly gem, oh, and the ink is Tim Holtz, Tattered Rose. So off to tackle the dreaded ironing but I'll supplement it with a little crafty break later on!!
