2019 Topic 17: A Vintage Christmas

Hi everyone, it's Kate here (https://kateyetter.com/) with you today, and I'd like to share with you a Christmas card for our Vintage Christmas theme.
I love any excuse to get started on my Christmas crafting. My tendency is to drift towards the non-traditional colors when it comes to Christmas but my favorite part of a Vintage Christmas is the the metallic and glitter.
My background showcases this stamp in gold metallic embossing.
I used Infusions and Fresco paint with a stencil in the background to add some color but kept the colors muted to go with the vintage theme.
Using Distress Markers I coloured my stamped Christmas tree.
To add some glitz, I brushed on some glitter gel.
To complete the card, the harsh edges were softened by brushing on some gesso with the tip of my finger. Now everything seems to mesh.
I love adding a bit of glam on my Christmas cards. For this card, I repeated the background stamp several times throughout the card and used only one focal image that wasn't words. Have a go at using more words and less pictures. I was surprised that I liked the result.
