I made this card using an assortment of Funky Fossil products.

I started by putting some "Antique Linen" Distress Oxide Inks onto my craft mat and spritzing with a little water.  I then swooshed my plain card through the ink in different directions to coat the card.

I did the same using "Shabby Shutters" Distress Oxide Inks, filling the remaining white areas using a paint brush.  This provided a lovely mottled aged look for the background.

I masked the coloured area with the Funky Fossil "Crackle Background" stencil and used "Pumice Stone" Distress Oxide ink through the stencil with a blending tool.  I only coloured the corners and the very edge of the area, leaving the middle clear for stamping later.

I removed the crackle stencil and replaced it with another Funky Fossil stencil called "Holly Wreath".  At first I used a shade of Distress Oxide called "Peeled Paint" through the stencil, but it looked too dull, so I went over it with another Distress Oxide Ink called "Mowed Lawn" which I was happier with.

I then moved on to the central area of the card.  I decided to use the sentiment from the Funky Fossil "Fa La La" clear stamp set.  I stamped the "Merry Christmas" section of the sentiment in Versafine Clair "Chianti" dark red ink.  The small holly branch above and below, I stamped in Versafine Clair "Shady Lane" green ink.

To finish the card, I added some gold dots around the central sentiment and added some holly berries using Liquid Pearls in a shade called "Ruby Red".
