A Vintage Christmas

The image for this Christmas card is from Divas D’Este’s Merry Christmas CS. It is packed full of gorgeous images and if I have time between now and Christmas you will see other images from this sheet used for glass ornaments.
I re-sized the CS and printed onto glossy photo paper.
 As I searched for suitable pattern paper (wanted to use sepia, cream and brown tones)  the design on this particular sheet from a pack called Vintage Romance caught my eye as it has the appearance of snowflakes. Deko Ice (available from The Altered Element) was used to edge the image.
