Happy Saturday. I just have not used my vintage image stamps enough this year so decided to get one out and finally use it today. I was inspired by the challenge at Splitcoast and the Papyrus card site. Such wonderfully inspiring cards there.
So, a few years ago, I won a Stampin Up Jumbo Wheel and have never used it. It is one of those large wheels that you snap into a handle and roll onto your paper. I inked it up with Versamark and rolled it across the top and the bottom of my paper. I then heat embossed it with white embossing powder. I sponged the whole card front with Peacock Feathers and Salty Ocean Distress inks and splattered some water over the ink to add to the snowy feel.
Next, I masked the bottom and top then stamped the image of the children with black Memento ink. I added scoring lines on either side of the image to define the center area. The silver twine and the pearl were the finishing touches.
Adding my card to these challenges:

I hope you Christmas preparations are coming along nicely. I so appreciate that you took time out out of your busy schedule to come by and take a peek.
