This fortnight at Jingle Belles we're making holiday cards with a vintage or retro vibe. You can incorporate actual vintage paper, sheet music, postcards and the like: OR you can use reproductions of the same; OR you can opt for using one of the many beautiful vintage-style stamps or paper lines available, as I have done here.
I've used a fun retro 1950's style journal card from Authentique (one of my faves for a vintage vibe; Graphic 45 and Carta Bella are good too!) with coordinating distressed gingham background, an ancient paper poinsettia, 7 Gypsies velvet leaves and an MME brad that might have been purchased during the last century. The fun and snarky sentiment came from another journal card and the ribbon, which is fairly new, from Paper Anthology, was impossible to resist because how often do you get to put red AND green gingham on the same card?!
Be sure to visit Jingle Belles to see Stephanie's amazing vintage collage card and check out the fun little prize, which just happens to be from my own Etsy Shop, Just Enough Stuff!
