Hello Crafters! I hope you had a wonderful holiday and are settling into your work week. I thought maybe you needed just a little more Christmas inspiration, and hope you will give this one a try. I love a vintage Christmas theme in my home, topped with the perfect red bow so this card really speaks to me. Believe it or not it was really easy to create, which is so important to me this time of year.

I don’t have a huge process video or tutorial to share today, because this card really speaks for itself. I started out by trimming a panel from the Vintage Christmas Paper Pack. The hardest decision I made was what portion of it I should cut off. Once I had the A2 panel cut I blended Eclipse Black ink around the edges creating a vignette.

Next I stamped the largest bow from Holiday Magic onto smooth cardstock and colored it with Copics. I chose a dramatic color combination, leaving the darkest colors concentrated where the ribbon overlaps or twists. Since this stamp set has dots drawn in, I used Morning Dew Crown Jewels to decorate it in those places. Finally I fussy cut it using my Scan n Cut, but if you don’t have one a good ole scissors will work just fine! I embossed the sentiment in gold onto the new Old Hickory cardstock. So pretty, right?

Copics: R59, 29, 46, 24, BV23
