MFT November Creative Challenge - Go Vintage

Welcome to this month's MFT Design Team Creative Challenge! This month we're being challenged to go vintage! You can see the list of participating design team members at Kim's blog HERE

OK! Vintage. Not a problem!! I chose to use the just released Inspired by Christmas set for my project today. First, I stamped the sleigh image on Kraft card stock with black ink, cut it out, and sponged around the edges with Antique Linen Distress ink before matting it with an an Oval Dainty Doily Die-namics die cut. I did some stitching, added some vintage-looking crocheted lace, some seam binding, some stick pins, and a twine-tied button. All very vintage-y :)

Here's the inside with a stamped off version of the sleigh and a sentiment from the set.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
