Vintage Christmas Trees

I really like vintage Christmas decorations and wanted to evoke that kind of feeling with this card featuring the Season Like Christmas stamp set.

How beautiful did that Merry Music Specialty DSP come up?  This paper is actually Whisper White, but that didn’t fit with the more Vanilla vintage look I wanted so I brayered a touch of So Saffron ink over the full surface and then sponged on layers of Soft Suede & Crumb Cake ink before scrunching it all up.  The small dots on the Christmas trees are actually heat embossed with gold EP which gives the card a lovely touch of extra shine!
