Season’s Greetings

Hi everyone! I’ve had a blast this busy Thursday morning showcasing my design team projects and I appreciate you hanging with me! A new challenge is live over at Gecko Galz and I’m super stoked to share my DT inspiration project for the November Jingle All The Way Customer Challenge!

I created a retro Christmas card in vintage colors featuring an i mage from Retro Christmas Collage Set as well as scrabble type letters from the Alter It Digital Collage Sheets, and I love how it turned out! I’m kind of vintage myself so anything retro really appeals to me, lol!

I sponged a tiny bit of Antique Linen distress ink on the image to distress it a bit, embellished the tree limbs and ornaments with glitter pen, and then layered it on burgundy paper and glitter paper. I created a layered element from a coordinating patterned paper and adhered it to the background, and then layered the image on that. I fussy cut individual scrabble type letters spelling “Season’s” and covered them with Glossy Accents for a little interest, and when they were dry I adhered them vertically under the edge of the image. I used a few glitter gumdrops along the opposite edge.

I decorated in the inside with a few leftover strips of gold, burgundy and patterned paper from the front, layered the panel, and then stamped a sentiment.
