This challenge caught my eye because a friend had just given me some antique Christmas cards she had found at an estate sale.
This was a great way to copy real vintage cards!
I started with cream color card stock for the top layer and stamped it with a Magenta stamps image using StazOn jet black ink.
Just under the image I stamped the verse from Stampendous "Joyful Phrases" using the same ink.
I noted on the original cards that they just picked out certain areas for color.
I assume it was cheaper back then to only run two color rounds on the machines.
I colored my main piece, with Prisma color pencils.
I also lined the outer edge with red pencil to make it look more like the actual vintage cards!
The base card is cut from red card stock and I made it small as that's the way the real vintage cards were.
