Vintage Christmas

A vintage Christmas card, and a quick one at that, to share today

I started off with the burlap patterned paper which didn’t look very Christmassy – so I heat embossed some white snowflakes on it and voila!  It’s Christmas.  I used a Crealies stacking die for the second layer, using the same embossed paper, and I edged the paper with Stickles to give a bit more definitiion.  I love how the white pops on this card.

I pulled the centres out of the small poinsettie, pulled them apart and rearranged them then applied Stickles to the centres instead of the original stamens.

A fair few die cuts, also in white, later and a super quick Christmas card.  Love how this one turned out.

The image is from a sheet of vintage images from Live Love Crafts – these are perfect for quick cards.
