C.R.A.F.T. Challenge # 246 - Christmas

It's Christmas again at C.R.A.F.T. Challenge!

This week I've had the chance to work with some lovely clear stamps from Flonz. I chose the Snow and Christmas set of stamps (you can find them here) which is a bit unusual for me.
I love these vintage-style stamps and the fact that some parts of the stamps have both outlined and full areas.

I've made two projects for this week's challenge.
I've made a card in a lovely vintage green, stamping the image with brown ink on ivory paper:

I'm happy with the unperfect coloring of the image, it adds to the vintage look I wanted to achieve. Papers are from the Christmas Village paper pad (First Edition).

Then, I've made some tags:

I had some silver tags in my stash and I decorated the border with a Martha Stewart punch. Then, I added a satin and a red sequins ribbon, some dots made with paint and the lovely Santa face from Flonz.

As usual, I suggest you take a look at the fabulous creations of my teamies, you can find them here.

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