Merry Christmas from Hampton Art!

All of us here at Hampton Art wanted to wish all of you a very Merry Christmas.


Well we have arrived and it is officially the season of Holiday card making. So I thought I would share a vintage Christmas card with you today. It was made with Graphic 45 Papers and a Gloria Stengel/Hampton Art Wood stamp for the sentiment.
Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas card by Patty Folchert

The two tone red card base was cut from Graphic 45 Renaissance Faire Collection/Enlightened Paper. Then I cut out the two evergreen mats from the same collection Florentine paper.  The main Santa paper is from the Graphic 45/A Place in Time Paper Pad for December. It was cut out and the edges distressed then added with foam dots. The tag is from the same collection, I stamped the “Merry Little Christmas” sentiment in brown ink first then cut it out and hole punched the tag. The tag piece was distressed and adhered to the evergreen mat with foam dots and the light blue ribbon was added tied into a bow.  Here is a close up shot:


Then a triangle photo corner was added to the top right from the Renaissance Faire collection and it was distressed as well and added with foam dots. The final touch of bling came from the Studio 112 three Gold stars added as shown.

Just in time for the season, an easy card to put together.  Best wishes for a wonderful Holiday season for you and yours.

Happy Holidays,
Patty
