Something a little bit different

Here are a couple of cards that I made today whilst out playing at Jane's. She makes fabulous vintage cards all the time which you can see here and today was one of her classes where I had a go myself.
She had loads of papers, images, ribbons and embellishments to choose from and this is what I made

I started off by using some cream decorative paper that I distressed and inked with Tim Holtz Distress Inks. The red holly is an Anna Griffin Stamp as is the border at the bottom. A rosette was added with a die cut snowflake. Jane had die cut some lacy borders which went really well with my chosen image.

This one started off as navy card which was layered with some red paper. Again this was distressed and inked. The vintage image was distressed also and stamped with a cute little holly stamp and some Brilliance ink. The doily was treated in the same way before layering behind the image and some ribbon added. The snowflakes were inked with more Brilliance ink and the finishing touches were smaller snowflakes and flat backed gems.
Hope you enjoyed your visit here today - see you again soon - Jacqueline xx
