Vintage Christmas

I made a total of 28 cards like the ones I shared yesterday (Gingerbread Christmas card).  I actually started them sometimes back in the summer and got a pretty good start towards the 80 -90 cards I'll need this year.  Now I'll share a little secret about me --- I get bored easily --- especially doing the same thing over and over and over again! So....you might figure that 28 of the same style of card is about all I can handle, and it's time to switch to something different!
I made up a few vintage Christmas cards last year and really liked how they turned out.  I decided to try some again this year.  The two on this page use images from Clearly Vintage (I think Cora posted them last Christmas season if you care to look for them). She's started posting some for this year, and I can hardly wait to use the adorable little girl holding the doll in this post!
Supplies used on the above card:
  • Image from Clearly Vintage
  • Cream cardstock 
    • printed image on and matted on a torn piece to enhance the vintage look
  • Blue ink
    • inked edges of torn paper with
  • Script Embossing folder (Provo Craft)
  • White ink
    • inked over embossing with
  • Snowflake Die (Sizzix)
  • Snowflake Brads
 Supplies used on this card include:
  • Image from Clearly Vintage
  • Cream Cardstock
    • printed image on
  • Red Cardstock
    • matted image on and tore edges to look "old"
  • Brown ink
    • inked torn edges with
  •  Script embossing folder (Provo Craft)
  • Black ink
    • inked over embossing with
  • Martha Stewart Branch Punch
  • Little red "berries"
I made two each of these designs -- see I told you I had a short attention span..........come back tomorrow and the rest of this week to see some more Christmas cards  I'm working on!
