Christmas Stampin' All Year Long #54

I just discovered this weekly challenge this week on Daily Dare. I've been wanting to get started on my Christmas cards, and this site seemed like my motivation. The challenge was to do a vintage Christmas card. This stamp is one of my all time favorite vintage stamps from Stampin' Up. Of course, it is now retired and wasn't even around very long either. Sure glad I couldn't pass it up. The lovely willow wind cardstock is from Mark's Finest Papers. I cuttlebugged it and used ivory for the stamped image. I did a direct to pad distressing around the edges. I stamped the image with Memento's tuxedo black and colored it with Copic markers. The punches are from Martha Stewart and the ribbon is from Paper Trey Ink.
