Christmas Vintage Swap


The second organized swap I participated in at Convention was a Christmas Vintage Swap.  The strip of card stock along the left edge is our new Core'dinations card stock introduced in the Holiday catalog.  It was embossed and then sanded.  I really like how a lighter shade of the card stock pops with the sanding.  It comes in three colors - Cherry Cobbler, Gumball Green and Early Espresso.
The Poinsettia was embossed in gold, then watercolored with Cherry Cobbler re-inker and an Aquapaiter.  It's hard to see but the card was also spritzed with Garden Green and Cherry Cobbler markers and the Spritzing tool.

Supplies:  Watercolor Winter and Heart of Christmas stamp sets; Brushed Gold, Garden Green, Very Vanilla and Cherry Cobbler Core'dinations card stock; Garden Green and Cherry Cobbler markers; Scallop Trim Border punch; Spritzing tool; Delicate Designs embossing folder, Labels Framelits and Sizzix Big Shot; Vintage Faceted Designer buttons.
