Vintage Joy Holiday Card with Paper Artsy

Hi Dreamers!
I am back today with a vintagey Holiday card made with Paper Artsy stamps....available in the USA from Blockheads Paper Arts!  I added lost of texture  and layers on the card to showcase this fab image.

Materials List:
Stamps: Holiday Theatre Paper Artsy from Blockheads Paper Arts
Tuxedo Black Memento
Vintage Photo Distress -Ranger
Spray Inks:
Java Walnut Antiquing Solution
Chicken Wire Crafters Workshop Template
5 x 7 Embossing Folder
Cardstock: Dark Green, Cream
Red Rhinestones


  • Make a card base from dark green CS 
  • Lay the Crafters Workshop Template on the card and spray on the inks
  • Distress with Vintage Photo
  • Run a rectangle of the same dark green CS through the Cuttlebug with the 5 x7 folder
  • Run the Vintage Photo ink pad over the dry embossing and add to the card base

  • Stamp the image with Tuxedo Black ink on cream CS and distress heavily with Vintage Photo
  • On cream CS, use the template again with the spray inks--stamp the image again on this piece
  • Cut a rectangle from this piece and place over the other stamped piece.  
  • Distress with Vintage Photo some more and add to card front

  • Tie a bow in the gold sheer ribbon--tie a  piece of red ribbon around the knot
  • Add the red rhinestones
