Old Fashioned Christmas Card

I really like the distressed look of this card. It kind of looks like something that has been around for years maybe even antique and even the ribbon looks aged and worn. The main image was stamped onto white card stock and cut out using an oval cutter. All of the edges of the card stock and designer paper were sponged using crumb cake ink. Once the main image was colored dazzling diamonds glitter was added using the 2 way glue pen. The organdy ribbon was heated using the heat gun to get the distressed look. You only need to heat it for a very short period of time and keep the heat gun moving to avoid creating holes and melting the ribbon.
