For my card I used my very cute Java Jumpers stamp from House Mouse, have you seen their wide eyes?? full of caffeine they are ,, lol :-) I coloured with Copics and inked the edges with Vintage Photo distress ink, I use this one such alot,, thank goodness for refills !! The papers are from Studio Calico, these are from the Autumn Press paper pack, gorgeous quality and designs. I used a Martha Stewart Arch Lattice border punch and finished with Hero Hues Brown ribbon and Earth Dots.

I always think of Sarah Kay images when I think of Vintage so I used this lovely Noel Joy image, coloured with Copics and I inked the edges with Vintage Photo distress ink. I also used a Unity Postcard stamp, again I inked the edges,wrote an address and sprayed with Perfect Pearls Glimmer for extra sparkle :-). The papers are Pink Paislee Christmas papers and these have a page of small vintage Santa images, I trimmed one of these to make the postage stamp. The lovely trim was in a RAK from Vicky, thanks xx

I used an EK Success Snowflake border punch,a mixture of MS, Woodware and Do Crafts snowflake punches and a few Robins Nest Metallic Dew Drops to finish. All the edges were stitched on my machine, saves on tape ,,, :-)
