Christmas Post Card

Hello there, welcome!  I'm having a deja vu, because I could have sworn that I already shared this Christmas card here.  After some searching on my blog with key words that would help me find it, nope...this did not turn up.  So, here you go:


This is one of my favorite holiday cards that I created for Christmas 2014.  I think it's that post card element (Winter Post / Stampin' Up!), combined with a beautiful Anna Griffin sentiment right beneath, all arranged on a Top Note die (SU).  Or maybe it's the scattering of vintage buttons and sequins.


Or maybe the fancy corner flourish by Spellbinders, or the vintage-look K & Co. die cuts (Santa, holly leaves and berries). 


I can't make up my mind!

Hope you've enjoyed seeing this one today.  :-)  Thanks for coming by!



Stamps: Winter Post - Stampin' Up!; sentiment - Anna Griffin - HSN Paper: Very Vanilla, Always Artichoke, dark green pattern, Crumb Cake Ink: Chocolate Chip, Crumb Cake - SU; Memento Tuxedo Black - Tsukineko; Tea Dye - Ranger Fibers: sewing thread; cream twine - May Arts Accessories & Tools: Top Note die - Stampin' Up!; vintage buttons; gold sequins - MJ Trimming; Corner Flourish die - Spellbinders; Santa, Holly die cut borders - K & Co.

Fabulously vintage and wonderful! I'd say it's everything combined and your very creative use of it that makes it so awesome. Glad you finally shared this one. It's time I started making a Christmas card or two, I think.
