The Spirit of Christmas Past

This fortnight we're celebrating the Spirit of Christmas Past, which is to say, we're creating cards with a vintage or retro vibe. That could mean incorporating actual vintage elements, using new products that have a vintage style, or using stamps or images that convey a retro vibe; whatever says vintage to you.  

And to add a little extra incentive to your endeavors, this week we are sponsored by Lauren's fantastic Etsy Shop Just Enough Stuff, so there's a sweet little pack of vintage Christmassy things for one lucky card member who links-up their vintage design.

Here are our vintage creations for this week:

Stephanie's Card

Stephanie say, "I went with some Tim Holtz papers that are marvelous vintage reproductions.  I paired them with a big bold sentiment in a vintage-like font from Unity Stamp Company holiday. faith. hope. love and stickers frim Simple Stories Vintage Rustic Christmas using a layout from Sketch~N~Scrap."

Lauren says, "I recently found a little stash of well-hoarded German Scrap that I had put aside, including this gorgeous Father Christmas. I've made a distressed background from vintage sheet music, accented with red and green patterned papers, set off by a strip of Eyelet Outlet Washi Tape that features images of vintage postcards."

And now let's hear more about that prize!

One randomly selected cardmaker will receive: 
A Deluxe Christmas Assortment of holiday-themed vintage and found papers from Just Enough Stuff, plus a set of Christmas Word Art clear stamps, some very fun holiday Stickpins, and a collection of doilies in various shapes, sizes and colors.
