Vintage Christmas


 Welcome to another Christmas Card Post. This one has a vintage look and was simply made. I used a matted graphic and a sentiment from some Designer Paper on the front along with some pieces that I salvaged from some Christmas decorations. Wrapped a ribbon around the card and tucked in the holly berries and leaf to finish.  I used some scraps of paper and stamped a verse to finish the inside.  

Challenges:
Sugar Creek Hollow: Vintage Christmas in July...had planned a card with a Sassy Cheryl image but ran out of time
ABC Christmas Challenge: O is for Open It Up-decorate the front and inside.
Creatalicious Challenge: Christmas in July
Craftyhazelnut's Christmas Challenge: Tie a ribbon


Supplies:                                                            
Paper: Red CS for Base, Authentique Wonder Collection Paper Pack and Icon

Ink: Memento Rhubarb Stalk, Distress Ink Tea Dye and Peeled Paint
Stamp: GKD inside
EF: Cuttlebug Kassie's Brocade
Organza Ribbon, Berries, Leaves from stash

I enjoy all your comments. Thank you. Theresa

Hi Theresa, finally home and hopefully able to get back in the swing, seems like I struggle after being away. Love your card, I am such a vintage Santa fan and love this image. Really clever using the Christmas trims.
Hope you are well.
