Vintage Christmas

Check out this vintage Christmas card. It features the Christmas Sweater 6X6 paper pack on winter sky. The 1-1/2 circle punch is the perfect tool to cut out the "ornaments" and the a muse studio bow maker helps tie perfectly even bows. Can you see the gold and silver dots above the ornaments? Those are the ornament hangers. :) Silver staz-on snowflakes finish off the look and a little gold dot in each silver snowflake is an additional shimmery touch.
Here's a close-up of the ornament toppers. Fun and subtle hints of shimmer.
More snowflakes fill the inside and more dots add to the shimmery goodness.
There are even gold dots added to the silver sentiment to continue the theme.

This card was the inspiration for my coffee ornament card in the previous post. This was one of my favorite cards to teach this month. The country vintage-y look really appeals to me and makes me think of comfort and home. But, also, it's a card that can be easily made by anyone, regardless of the stamping experience.

And, if you've already got your Christmas cards finished, wouldn't this make a great thank you for Christmas presents received? You could change out Season's Greetings to Thank You and you'd be good to go. :)

The Christmas Sweater 6X6 paper pack goes away at the end of December so be sure to pick it up before January hits if you need some in your collection.

Have a wonderfully creative day!

Very pretty, Seleise! I love how you never neglect to finish the inside of your cards! Beautifully done, my friend. I, too, am sadly behind on my commenting. Shame on me, right? Hugs!

Great card and very creative. I like that you fancied up the inside of the card just as much as the front. It's a fabulous touch.
