Holiday Time at Paper Funday with a Touch of Vintage

This is my second post for today, if you are here for Ellibelle's Crafty Wednesday challenge, please visit this link.

A few weeks ago I was invited to join the Paper Funday Challenge as a guest designer for December and today I am sharing my card made for the challenge. Paper Funday is a monthly papercraft challenge offering a new optional theme the first Wednesday of each month and for the month of December it's "Holiday Time". 

And here is what I made with the optional theme in mind. 

I love this beautiful old- fashioned stamp and try to get it out each holiday season! 

This is PSX stamp K-2431, you might be able to find it on eBay or Etsy. 

The image was stamped with Versafine Onyx ink and colored with Distress inks. I fussy cut around the oval.

The sentiment is part of a stamp set by Whimsy Stamps but long retired. 

The background was done by simply inking with Vintage Photo Distress ink and some white Posca pen spatter. Some natural jute twine finishes off the card.

It's hard to see but I added some glitter onto the snow and berries for a little sparkle.

Thanks so much for visiting!
