An Old-Fashioned Holiday

We're still celebrating cards made with vintage or vintage-style products, or even just themes that have a strong retro vibe. Here's what we made this week:

Lauren says, "This week I've dipped into my stash of actual old stuff: I made a collage of torn sheet music, vintage book pages and Green Stamps; added Simple Stories washi, and framed part of an Authentique journal card with an ancient Tim Holtz Idea-ology Christmas Vignette Boxtop and sticker. I inked and machine-stitched around the edges, then mounted the whole thing on some Authentique brick-patterned paper and an A7 kraft card."

Stephanie says, "I found this monochromatic winter/Christmas scene in a vintage Christmas issue of Ideals Magazine.  I sprayed it with clear sparkle spray (that is absolutely gorgeous but seriously refused to show-up in any angle of photograph).  With the sparkle, the Taylored Expression Simple Strips - Christmas sentiment was all I added to the serene scene."


There's a sweet little prize this fortnight, which comes from Lauren's Etsy Shop, Just Enough Stuff, so if you've been wishing you had some older goodies to play with, you should definitely link up on the original post!

Since it's a week that happened to contain a fifth Monday, you can automatically link up your Jingle Belles card with the Double Trouble Challenge's SomeThing, AnyThing, EveryThing event, since we're on their list of Past Partners!
