Vintage Distressed Christmas

Hello from design team member, Heidi.  

I was in the mood to use some distress inks so I decided on making a vintage-look distressed Christmas card.  I really love the soft, muted tones.  The backgrounds were sponged and then I spritzed water on the backgrounds to remove ink. And I dried the panels and repeated the process until I loved the look.  The colors I used were Bundled Sage, Speckled Egg, Tea Dye and Antique Linen.  

I added shadows to the dove image with a grey marker, and then I applied some glitter glue over top to get a pretty holiday look.  

I finished the card off simply with some silver twine and gems.  

I hope this card reminds you of the spirit of Christmas past and present. 

 I used stamps from the Blank Page Muse shop:
