Hello, Friends! I’m very excited to be sharing a couple of Christmas cards made with the new Crafty Secrets Vintage Santa Digital Stamp Set. This is a big set…30 images! All beautifully vintage and very easy to make up into pretty Christmas cards. You’re going to love them!
I layered on the vintage Santa collage paper from Creating with Vintage Christmas CD #6 and added some fun embellies, some stitching and distressing. I love how antique this card looks.
I have a “thing” for Christmas stockings, probably because my mom made all of ours when we were kids, and they were so beautiful. She also made them for our kids when they were little. So this scene from the set called my name for sure!
I cut out the image with a Spellbinder die, but cut around the stockings so that they could hang outside the frame. They were colored with watercolor pencils and then treated to some Diamond stickles.
The background “paper” is actually washi tape that I’ve had in my stash for some time. I’ve never used it like this on a card before, but it was so fast and easy, I’m sure you’ll be seeing me use this idea again soon! More of the same pretty ribbons…because they just match this set so well.
Here’s a sneak peek of this wonderful set!
Sandy has this wonderful new set loaded up in the online store so you can pop on over and just load it in your cart and download it instantly. No shipping…no waiting! It doesn’t get easier than that! Watch the Crafty Secrets blog and Facebook page for more great samples from the design team.
