Vintage Winter

Hello Stampers! Today's card has some vintage charm. I stamped the skates (from Christmas in the City) in chocolate chip ink on bashful blue card stock. Then I used a water brush and some more ink to color a few parts. The skate blades are colored with a glitter pen. And I added a brad to "hang" the skates on.

I layered some snowflake die cuts and punches for an embellishment and tied on a sentiment tag.

What's In It?

Stamps: Christmas in the City (LAD)
Paper: bashful blue, creamy caramel (SU), vintage cream (PTI), Mistletoe and Co. (Pink Paislee)
Ink: chocolate chip, close to cocoa (SU)
Other: rectangle and scalloped rectangle and tag die cuts (Spellbinders), distress Stickles (Ranger), snowflake dies (Sizzix), snowflake punch (Martha Stewart), snowflake gemstone (Michael's), twine (PTI), dimensionals, vintage brad (SU), water brush, sponge
