There's one week left (ETA - oops - deadline is on Wednesday!) to play in the current Festive Friday Theme Challenge: Vintage
Claire Brennan from Waltzingmouse Stamps is playing along as our Guest Designer, and in her honour, I pulled out my Nutcracker Sweet set to make this simple, elegant and vintage (I hope!) card.
To make it feel vintage, I used cream rather than white card stock. Then I embossed the Nutcracker in gold and added some red rhinestones to their crowns (and now I'm getting a three kings vibe from this). They took up most of the space in the main panel, so I decided to put the sentiment (also from this set) in front of them - I love how the placement of the sentiment makes it look like they're holding a bar with a sentiment banner on it!
We all hope that you'll be able to play along with us in this challenge - the perfect opportunity to dig out those 'classic' Christmas stamps and supplies!
Did you see that there's a 'Grand Prize' at Festive Friday? Here are the details, and they're sure to provide you with even more incentive for keeping up with your Christmas cards throughout 2013:
