Vintage Christmas

Well, it's no secret how much I LOVE "Victorian Elements"!  So, after I made the tag, I had to put it as a focal image on a card. 



I stamped "Script Background" from TAC (love that stamp!) with Cognac Palette ink for the background.  Then, I took my sponge and distressed the edges with Jardin Moss Palette ink.  The only other thing I did before I adhered the tag was to take some DCWV White core paper and punched a border and then used a sponge to distress it, bringing out the white core. 

I know it's hard to tell in the photo, but before I glued the kraft piece of the tag to the green scalloped mat, I crumpled it up to give it even more of an aged look (I did this before when I made the tag).



Hope you enjoyed it!
