Instructions:

A Tip From Shauna :

I combined a simple distressing technique with a quick embellishment trick for this unique holiday card. I crumpled the card quote, then uncrumpled it and inked the edges black. Then I added it to the card front, creating a vintage look and feel. For an easy embellishment, I threaded two mini spiral clips through ribbon knots then added one to a cut out holiday stamp and the other over a ribbon that runs the width of the card.
