Merry Monday Vintage Christmas card







I'm entering this card over at Merry Monday.

 Hmmm..THREE things for this challenge...snowflakes,dry embossing,and neutral colors. Actually FOUR things...they are also asking for a vintage card.




Well, I really had fun with this one! 
I used a Memory Box snowflake wreath die, embossed some Memory Box poinsettia's, and used cream, baked brown sugar, and Kraft for my colors. To give it a vintage feel, I added the sentiment and some pearls.



I'm a fan of neutral colored cards, and I can't wait to see what everyone comes up with for this one. Head on over and check them out!


Paper: SU very vanilla, Kraft, baked brown sugar
Stamps: Taylored Expression Holiday many minis
Ink: Baked Brown sugar
Dies: Impression Obsession reindeer and pine sprig cluster
Memory Box snowflake wreath and poinsettia's,
Other: SU pearls
