Fa La La La…. Christmas or Halloween

I headed up to my shed this evening, and was in two minds what to make, do I make something Halloweeny or do I go Christmassy?

Christmas won!

So I made a card 🙂

There are lots of special elements incorporated in this vintage christmas card…

See the lovely lace bow? … my friend Gina in Sweden sent that lace over to me 🙂

and see the tiny vintage button, that still has the old thread attached to it?  well thats from my mum’s button stash, and it’s either a button off one of our school shirts when we were kids, or it’s one of my dad’s buttons off his white navy shirts…

and the teeny tiny vintage cotton ric rac? that was sent over to me by my friend Marybeth in the USA 🙂

I had been hoarding it because the packet was unopened …

so I decided it’s time to start making my christmas cards and be organised this year for a change!

Supplies List :-

  1. Stampin Up Crumb Cake Cardstock for the card base
  2. Cosmo Cricket Mr Claus Patterned Paper
  3. 1 x shipping tag
  4. Wooden Heart embelishment from Wild Orchid Crafts
  5. Vintage Lace from Gina
  6. Vintage Ric-rac from marybeth
  7. Vintage Button (my mum’s old button stash)
  8. Glossy accents and Scortape
  9. Frayed Burlap Distress Ink

Have a great weekend 🙂

  1. The design on top of your blog is so serene. Love the lace. The red paper on the card is a lovely shade . Who can resist snowpeople? Hugs May xox
