Lauren says, "i ♥LOVE♥ and collect vintage paper of all kinds, from postcards to magazines to maps; some of my favorite holiday card bits come from a stash of old ideals magazines that came from my uncle's mother. at first i had serious qualms about cutting into those, but part of what i like about them is the texture of the paper, and the fact that some of it has aged imperfectly making each piece unique. miss georgia was herself a clever crafty lady, and i THINK she'd be quite happy to see me making christmas card creations with her lovely mags! i've combined three separate vintage elements (the angel, the poem, and the starry background) with new papers and rub-on (by basic grey) on this card"
