Vintage Christmas Collage

Hello Everyone!
Can you believe it is October already?? Christmas is less than 3 months away;  I have been busy making Christmas cards with the fabulous new releases from Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps. 

There was really no plan for this card other than the fact that I wanted to play with my DecoArt Dazzling Metallics Splendid Gold Acrylic Paint again.  I applied a couple of light layers of this paint to white cardstock and let it dry.  Then I stamped off with the Music Background stamp and stamped onto the gold background.  I clear embossed this background. Since there was not a lot of ink on the image as I had stamped off once, coverage with the ep was spotty at best, adding to its shabby chic look.  The embossing kept the ink from smearing when I used the embossing buddy on the background before stamping the tree.  Ask me how I know!  ;)
 The tree was stamped in Versamark and embossed with Early Espresso embossing powder.  The star was stamped in Versamark and embossed with gold embossing powder.   I added the 'Silent Night Holy Night' words because of the song Silent Night; I thought that fit well with the Music Background image.  The sentiment is also clear embossed. 
The rest was simple-embossing on Naturals Ivory cs, a scalloped edge, an Early Espresso edge to the image panel and a big brown bow. 

Thanks so much for stopping by; your visit is much appreciated!

Have a blessed week!
