My Christmas Traditions Christmas Card for Friends & Family

 

For about three years now, I have been making Christmas cards to send to friends and family.  This year, I did was all about Tim Holtz.  I always enjoy making the card and this year was no exception.

The picture is one that I took of the boys on Thanksgiving day and I sized it so that it would fit in the die from Papertrey Ink. I then inked the edges with a little Bundled Sage Distress Ink. The background paper is all from the Christmas Kraft Resist paper pack from Tim Holtz.  I used Distress Stains to color the background and then spritzed it with some red Perfect Pearls spray.  The edges were distressed.  The sentiment (also from Papertrey Ink) was stamped on vellum using Archival Ink and then I heavily inked it with Old Paper Distress Ink and heat set it.  Then I tore the vellum into strips and inked the edges with Vintage Photo Distress Ink.  I slid the vellum strip into a memo pin that was stuck into the foam adhesive behind the picture.
