New Xmas Stamps and Paper Scrap Cards

These two cards were inspired by the Whimsy clear stamp set called, ATC Sleigh Rides.  I really liked the vintage look of the signage-like stamps.  I had fun finding just the right color and print of paper scraps to add to and compliment the main images.  The Xmas printed blank cards were from a boxed Xmas set  I bought (last year?) at HM Ben Franklin Crafts. There will probably be boxed cards again this year at the store.
Of the two cards, I like this one the best because of the reindeer image and the 5 cents.  I was happy to find a small strip of leaping reindeer paper to add to this card.  In my paper scrap pile I found an old foxed card with a gold rimmed blank panel.  I'm so glad that I didn't throw it away because it was perfect for the vintage look of my new card.
This angle shows the Christmas tree stamp in a better light. I heat embossed the words with Hero Arts brass embossing powder from HM BFC.  I used the Misti stamping tool to ensure I could re-stamp the image if it wasn't clear enough.  Actually, I originally stamped the image in dark green but it looked too dull so I re-did it by stamping again and heat embossing the brass colored powder.  I was pleased that one of the printed card blanks had Xmas trees on the front that matched the stamped message. These cards really reflect who I am.... a lover of vintage/antiques stuff and an anti-waster/hoarder of paper scraps. LOL!
