"Merry Christmas Card on the Southern Ridge Trading Company Blog

It's my turn back on the Southern Ridge Trading Company blog with a vintage "Merry Christmas" card. There is still time to participate in our Monthly Challenge. To see all the details and how you can enter, head here

Supplies Used: SRTC - Merry Christmas Greetings Pack, Leafy Frame and Assorted Flowers. Emerald Creek - Onyx Frost Embossing Powder. Tsukineko/Imagine Crafts - VersaMark. Maja Designs - 6x6 "Home for the Holidays". Bazzill Cardstock - Brown Cardstock. Ranger - Ground Espresso Distress Ink and Blending Tool.

The chipboard pieces that I used on my card are the Merry Christmas Greetings Pack and Leafy Frame. To start, I separated the Merry Christmas word with scissors so that I could place the "Merry" at the top of the card and "Christmas" at the bottom of the card. For the words and the leafy frame, I went overtop of them with Ground Espresso Distress Ink. Once I was happy with the coverage of the ink, I covered the words and leafy frame lightly with VersaMark. Once the VersaMark is on the chipboard pieces, I sprinkled over Onyx Frost embossing powder from Emerald Creek and embossed it with a heat tool. Below are pictures of how the chipboard pieces look once embossed. To finish off my leafy frame, I added the old fashioned santa picture to the frame and then added an assortment of flowers to the top right and bottom left hand corners of the frame.

Here is my card with all of the elements put together

Thanks for stopping by and taking a look at my vintage Merry Christmas card. Stay tuned for some another fantastic Christmas card this week.

Until Next Time!
