an old fashioned xmas

time for another new prompt at ♥JINGLE BELLES♥ and this time we're celebrating "an old fashioned christmas" so we'd love to see cards that reflect that. whether it's done by incorporating actual vintage items or any of the beautiful brand new products with a luscious vintage vibe is 100% up to you! i went with a bit of both:

vintage lace and sheet music from my stash; vintage postcard scanned, reduced slightly, and printed on kodak premium glossy photo paper, then distressed with ranger ink and a tonic edging tool; patterned paper: basic grey; doily from paper anthology; cardstock: staples; adhesives: elmers brand gluetape, 3m foam tape, sewing machine

i've got some actual vintage sheet music and lace from my stash, but the doily paper and doily scrap are new. the angel image kind of splits the difference: i scanned an actual vintage postcard from my collection, reduced it slightly in size to fit my not-quite-A7 card, and hit the edges with a bit of antique paper ink and a distressing tool.

stephanie also has a beautiful card to show you AND you can read about the prize that's up for grabs to one lucky random cardmaker who links up with us this fortnight. (hint: it's from my etsy shop, just enough stuff!) hop over to ♥JINGLE BELLES♥ for all the details!


  1. As always your portrayal of a Vintage Card is AWESOME. everything about it is perfect!!!

  2. Lace and a that combination on your card. Very vintage and BEAUTIFUL.
