DT: CHNC: vintage/ shabby chic

It’s time for a new challenge at Craftyhazelnuts Christmas challenge and this week it is vintage/shabby chic. I decided to dig out the moose die again… after all I love the vintage look to him!

I created lots of layers for this card and each is distressed … first some Tranquil Tide cardstock which I had inked with Vintage photo distress ink and splashed with water. Then a layer of wax paper. Then vellum which I had stencilled and embossed with blue powder.

Finally then the die cuts…

I cut the moose and trees from a mix of papers… vintage book print and some kraft all of which I added the ink to them to make them more vintage looking.

Finally the sentiment was added with a layer of the Dapper Denim cardstock that I had used as an accent on the moose.

Love how this came out. And just adore that moose!

Looking forward to seeing what everyone else does for this challenge over at the blog.

Happy crafting!

  1. I do love this tim holtz moose and ask myself why I haven’t gotten him yet. Love all the elements you added to your card!
