Quick and Easy Vintage Look Christmas Card
Hello! Spellbinders and Cathe Holden just came out with a Christmas Edition of her Flea Market Finds and it was so fun to create with! Today, I used her Home for the Holiday’s paper pad: (CH-021) and Jingle Bells Miscellany die cuts (CH-019). I had fun laying out each item and then coming up with combinations for my cards.
The first card was quick and easy but I love result. My background is made from 2 pages from the paper pad that I combined at the midpoint. Using craft foam for dimesion, I attached the background to an A2 card base. Then, I just popped on the Christmas Tree and sentiment with foam tape.
Cardmaking with Vintage Ephemera
My second card is a collage style pieced together with designer paper, printed die-cuts and stamps. I used 2 rectangles and two 1.25″ squares of paper cut from the Home for the Holidays paper pad for my background. I distressed my kraft card base, background panel and the die cuts with 3 different Distress Crayons (bronze, gathered twig and aged mohogany) and then added lots of ephemera from the Jingle Bells Miscellany die cut pack. I also used 2 stamps from Cathe Holden’s previously released stamp kit called Handle with Care and added a tiny little paper clip.
Thanks for stopping by!
