Getting festive with Tim Holtz Worn Wallpaper and Festive Overlays

Tim Holtz Festive Overlay stamp set and Christmas Worn Wallpaper
Is it too early for Christmas cards? Sorry!
We have a new challenge today at A Vintage Journey with the theme of Paper Stash - our host is Sandy and this is what she says...

I am sure we all have them, those endless bits of beautiful scrapbook papers we have hoarded over the years. Create a project of any kind using them in creative ways in our preferred vintage, shabby, mixed media, art journaling, industrial, timeworn or steampunk styles.

I have started my cards using some new products from Tim Holtz - Festive Overlays stamp set and the Christmas Worn Wallpaper collection. I love the overlay idea - did I hear Tim Holtz say it was Paula Cheney's idea? A good one, whoever it was!

The cards above are A6 size. I was on a roll so made some 4x4 inch and A7 too!

I am back at AVJ later in the month for our Creative Cardmaking post - where I am using the same stamps but lots more texture and ink!
