Merry Monday 217


Hello, time for a Vintage Christmas card from me! I had a fun time making this card this afternoon. I started with an old K&Co. chipboard stocking piece and looked for matching paper.

I found Fancy Pants "Merry Little Christmas" which has a vintage/collage-y feel. I distressed the edges with a TH distress tool and sponged on Antique Linen distress ink.

 Following the sketch, I laid out the panels, adding a MS doily, Jillibean Soup ribbon, twine, a jingle bell, and a few clear sequins. The card base is Papertrey Ink Kraft, my favorite.

Thanks for visiting today.

  1. Your vintage Christmas card is just delightful, makes me want to pop in some Christmas music and start stamping. I really like how the polka dot ribbon contrasts with the background paper.
