Today's card is a Christmas card for the Business Stamper's Coaching Group challenge. I decided to go antique and thought that Winter Post was the perfect stamp for the vintage look.  What do you think?

I used the retired DSP called Au Chocolate – just right for a vintage card.   I don't remember when it retired - perhaps 2 or 3 years ago.  The trees in the background are from the stamp set "Lovely as a tree" and the sentiment is "A Cardinal Christmas".  The edges of the Naturals Ivory card stock were sponged with Chocolate Chip to give it that "old" look.

    I’m typically not a ‘brown’ person (though I love chocolate!!!), but this card is stunning. Thanks for showing something I would never have thought to do.
