Timeless Tuesday

At my store, we always celebrate Christmas after it's over because it's so crazy-busy before, so today is the day we're having our employee Christmas luncheon. All the employees chipped in for a gift for the boss, and I made this card to put it in. I've been dying to use this Vintage Postcard stamp set (must be currently sold out, but I do have some at Toyrifix!) from Flourishes ever since it was released 2 months ago, so I finally got around to it and incorporated the Timeless Tuesday challenge for this week into it. The challenge is to use pearls on your creation, and I think I managed it well! :) This paper is from Bo Bunny, and I'm SO in love with it! I wish I hadn't discovered it just 2 weeks before Christmas! Oh well, I'll save some for next year.
The postcard image was stamped on shimmer white cardstock with Broken China distress ink, and then I embossed it with an ultra thick embossing enamel to give it an "icy" look. I sponged some Old Paper distress ink on a lot of the edges, distressed a few edges too to give the whole card a little more of a vintage look, and I dabbed my pearls with an E42 Copic marker too, just to make them a little less white.

Thanks for looking! Stay tuned later today for another post.... I had so much fun last year doing a "Favorites" post of all my favorite cards from the past year, so I thought I'd do it again this year. I hope you'll check back in!

Gorgeous! LOVE that shimmer paper (I forget I have that). That, the embossing, and the lovely ribbon all give it an icy look. Love that paper!
