"I have always thought Christmas time, when it has come round, as a good time, a kind, forgiving, charitable time; the only time I know of, in the long calendar of the year, when men and women seem by one consent to open their shut-up hearts freely..." -Charles Dickens

I wanted to go old-school vintage, with a modern twist, on my clean and simple creation, so I chose to stamp lightly a postcard image onto some ivory paper. I added a diagonal, scored strip of midnight blue patterned paper for some movement. I covered a wooden reindeer embellishment with distress ink and touches of gold glitter to replicate vintage ornaments and adhered it to the card in the same direction as the scored panel. I finished the card with a stamped greeting from Snowflake Greetings by CAS-ual Fridays Stamps.
