Olde Time Father Christmas

Hello lovelies, hope you are well! Today I am sharing a vintage Christmas card that I created yesterday. I just adore this beautiful Olde Time Father Christmas image. 

I have used a variety of papers; the wood texture paper is from my own stash, the vintage bingo card is from Pinterest and the music score sheet is from the Sepia Ephemera paper set. 

I started with a blank pre-scored Kraft card; next, I layered the wood texture and music score sheet paper. I distressed the edges with Black Soot DI. I then tore some corrugated card and adhered it to the left side of the card. 

Here I have adhered two banners of music score paper using a banner metal die behind the main image. 

To finish my card, I have used a Tattered Lace Poinsettia die along with the music score sheet paper and some Tim Holtz Holiday greens cut from kraft cardstock. Everything has been distressed with Black Soot DI and white acrylic paint. Thanks so much for stopping by, hugs Zowie xx 

I'd like to enter my card into the following challenges:
