Old-Fashioned Fun

Over at Jingle Belles, we're still celebrating A Very Vintage Xmas with old or new elements that have some vintage charm. Here's what I made this week:

The robin postcard is from my own postcard collection, so rather than use the actual card, I scanned and reprinted. The other advantage of this method is that I could resize it just a bit smaller, so it fit more comfortably on my A7 card. The poinsettia illustration in the lower background is part of a page from an old Ideals Christmas Magazine. The rest of my elements are new (or at least newish, lol) from my lss Paper Anthology: the beautiful grey plaid Simple Stories paper, Petaloo burlap poinsettia and lovely realistic Prima holly leaves, not to mention the doilies and twill ribbon. I don't think I've ever made a holiday card with this much GREY on it, but I quite like the result!

Be sure to visit Jingle Belles to see Stephanie's beautiful card and check out the fun little prize that's at stake this time. (Hint: it's vintage goodies from my own Etsy shop, Just Enough Stuff!)
