A Vintage Christmas

Hello blog friends,

I’m back with my DT project for the new challenge over at Sugar Creek Hollow. I can’t believe the last two weeks of November are gone – time just flies. For this fortnight the Sugar Creek Hollow challenge is “A Vintage Christmas”. You can make anything you wish (cards, altered items. gifts, etc.) as long as it is vintage or shabby chic. For this challenge we are pleased to have Avril Branthwaite joining us as guest designer. You can see more of her lovely work at Mrs. B’s Crafting Addition.

My card is created with traditional Christmas colours and a lovely vintage Christmas image from Janet K Design – I so much love her designs! The card is for a very dear friend and she loves lots of glitter on Christmas cards, so you will see more sparkle on this one than on my other cards. The rosettes were made with a Tim Holtz Alterations die and I embellished them with glitter, distress ink and pearls to make them look like hanging Christmas ornaments. Hope you like my take on the challenge.

    I really love how you have layered everything and how well it all works together. I especially love the way you have repeated the colours and the leaves on the inside too.
