Cozy Christmas for HSS223

Pin It Now! Here I am back with another Christmas card using my favorite set of the year!  I love all things vintage, so I keep going for this one, Cozy Christmas, and the coordinating Home for Christmas DSP. It's so sweet!
I used our latest sketch from Hand Stamped Sentiments...
For my card, I wanted to have a more shabby chic vintage look, and the brightness of the houses and churches on the DSP was throwing me off. So, I brushed over it with a layer of chalk paint and sponged the edges with gold. I placed the original paper next to my finished panel so you can see the difference. It's just more subtle, so the sentiment stands out.

Why don't you join in the challenge this week and make a little special something for someone?!
Have a blessed and creative day! ~Erika
