Vintage Happy Christmas Card

Crafty Secrets Vintage Happy Christmas Card

Hello, Friends!  I’m soooo far behind on my Christmas preparations!  I am trying to get a few last minute cards done before it’s too late!  I pulled out my Crafty Secrets Creating with Vintage Christmas CD the other day and found the cutest little vintage image that I worked up into this pretty layered Vintage Happy Christmas Card.

Kathy by Design/Vintage Happy Christmas card for Crafty SecretsI created lots of layers by tearing and overlapping sections of paper beneath my cute focal image. All the papers are printed from the Creating with Vintage Christmas CD.  I used the brown music paper, Red and Green Music Paper, and the December Calendar from our free 2016 calendar download.  I found a beautiful vintage poinsettia card on the CD, and I used that as a layer in the background, too.  I fussy cut the poinsettias and layered them beneath my focal image, then added some pretty Petaloo blossoms and stick pins, die cut ornaments and a sparkly sheer iridescent red organza bow.

Crafty Secrets December 03I hadn’t done a really distressed card in a long time, so I went to town with my distressing tool

Crafty Secrets December 04I crumpled, crinkled, distressed and inked my papers, then used loads of foam adhesive to create dimension and depth.

Crafty Secrets December 05The inside of the card uses a sentiment stamp from the Vintage Santa Digital Art Stamp Set. I added a cute image from the Vintage Christmas Booklet and more Vintage Christmas paper from the CD to finish off the card.

So, are you finished with all your Christmas cards yet?  I think some of our friends and family are destined to receive New Year’s cards this year!  LOL Or, better yet…maybe I’ll just get a head start on Valentine’s day!

Thanks for stopping by!
