613 Avenue Create - December 2020 Challenge: Anything Goes with Optional Twist: Anything Vintage

Hello, Crafty Peeps!
Welcome to the final challenge of the year at 613 Avenue Create!  The Optional Twist to our Anything Goes Challenge is Anything Vintage!

Wishing you happy holiday celebrations!

I had an interesting time creating this card!  I knew that I wanted to use the traditional colors of red and green.  I knew that I wanted to use the ornament stamp, and I also knew that I wanted to use kraft paper for both my base and my card face.

As much as I love Kraft paper, I knew that Kraft on Kraft would not be visually interesting.  I decided that I would add color to my layer using Vintage Photo Distress Oxide Ink and Glycerine. Glycerine is wonderful for smoothing out colors. I added in a touch of Memento "Bamboo Leaves" dye-based ink for contrast in random areas.

I love these ornaments. They remind me of the Christmases of my childhood.  I am going to attempt to recreate this card but I will probably make the ornaments blue and yellow.  I hope it works out.  I need at least three more of these!
