I started out with a nice big piece of round chipboard. I cut out a circle of the same size and cut it into quarters. On each quarter panel, using Vintage Photo distress ink, I stamped a background stamp, one from each of these sets: Wendy Vecchi's Nature's Art, Live and Make Art, Believe in Art and Artistic Outpost's Ephemera Backgrounds. Then I sewed the panels back together with a zigzag stitch and glued it over the chipboard circle. I ink distressed it up a bit with more Vintage Photo and then randomly gold embossed the outer edges. The ruffle is made from kraft paper twist ribbon that I stamped the Christmas Carol music from Tim Holtz's Holiday Minis 3. The paper twist was cut in a long strip, gathered and glued to the back to form a ruffle of sorts.
The doily was colored with Vintage Photo Distress Stain and the Santa from Tim Holtz's Holiday Minis was stamped in brown with Antique Linen Distress Stickles used on his holly leaf crown. The snowflakes were cut from vintage book pages with an older Spellbinders snowflake die set and of course ink distressed with Vintage Photo. The crinoline and the felt were cut with the Tattered Florals die.
