Vintage Christmas Kitsch

Vintage Christmas Kitsch

I was inspired to look at some vintage postcards to figure out a layout for this card…I stamped the deer, added the circle in pencil, then stamped the greens (masking where needed), then drawing in the banner and circle with a black sharpie (waterproof pen). I had some challenges with the purple background, but it was sure a fun experiment – and this is one of my fave cards lately! Watch the video below or click HERE to see it in HD on YouTube.
