Have Yourself a Very Vintage Christmas

We're still creating Vintage this week at Jingle Belles ... either featuring vintage products, a vintage design style ... or both.

To add a little extra incentive to your endeavors, this prompt is sponsored by Lauren's Etsy shop, Just Enough Stuff, and there's a sweet little pack of vintage Christmassy things for one lucky cardmaker who links up with us this week!

Here's what we made this week.

Lauren's Second Card

Lauren says, "I always have plenty of GREAT vintage stuff, but sometimes it's the wrong size for a card, as was true of this lovely illustration; or the wrong color--as in my text from "a christmas carol"-- so I used my all-in-one printer to scale down and make everything a bit more matte and vintage-looking! I employed the current Sketch Saturday layout and finished off with some gloriously sparkly Eyelet Outlet bling!"

Stephanie says, "When I go to an estate sale, I immediately head to the back bedrooms in the house, which is usually where I find a shoe-box filled with vintage cards & envelopes (and if I'm really lucky post cards).  I love giving those vintage cards a new life for another holiday.  This gorgeous center panel was cut from one of those cards ... I added a sticker sentiment (on foam tape for dimension) and some paper before framing it all on a black card base."

Remember to link-up on the original post by 6pm (EST) on Wednesday, March 23rd for a chance to win the prize. Keyword for galleries and Flickr is JB:16:06.

Gorgeous cards ladies, thanks for the inspiration, I was horrified when a friend told me that cleaning out her Mum's house which had been in the family for many generations a box of vintage cards some of which were postmarked prior to 1900 were simple tipped in the recycle bin!! ... Megan
