Spirit of Christmas Past

This week we're still celebrating A Very Vintage Christmas this week by making cards featuring real vintage items, or new things with a vintage vibe. Or maybe you're an overachiever and want to do both.

Here's what we made this week:

Lauren's Other Card

Lauren says, "The robin postcard I built the card around, is from my own postcard collection, so rather than use the actual card, I scanned and reprinted. This also meant I could resize it just a bit smaller, to fit more comfortably on my A7 card. The poinsettia illustration in the lower background is part of a page from an old Ideals Christmas Magazine. The rest of my elements are new(ish, lol) from my lss Paper Anthology: the beautiful grey plaid Simple Stories paper, Petaloo burlap poinsettia and lovely realistic Prima holly leaves, not to mention the doilies and twill ribbon. I don't think I've ever made a holiday card with this much GREY on it, but I quite like the result!"

Stephanie says, "I had plans to go a different route this week, but got sucked-in by the vintage bits and bobs still on my studio table.  I used the other half of the doily from last week's card, a vintage page of sheet music from a falling-apart-hymnal, and more vintage postage and holiday stamps.  I finished with a row of champagne jewels, because that color always says vintage to me."
