A Vintage Christmas At The Craft-Room

Time for another Craft-Room Challenge. We do not have a host this time, following a group discussion we thought it would be fun to have a Vintage Christmas.  You are welcome to make anything Vintage Christmas Themed that strikes your fancy.

Crafty Individuals are our Sponsors for the challenge.

 For my DT piece I've made a Christmas card using a Gecko Galz image.

I covered half the card with Christmas vellum and the other half with some paper from my stash. The image was edged with fired brick distress ink and matted onto a some patterned paper, I used the same patterned paper to die cut the holly leaves [Sizzix], I covered the leaves with stickles, I also put some stickles on the image. I dyed some seam binding green [wished I'd used a different green] and added it to the card then I added the holly, red beads and sentiment.

This is another card using a Gecko Galz image.

Again I used patterned paper and card from my stash. I put some stickles on the image and added some wooden snowflakes that I embossed with glittery white embossing powder, the glittery bits don't show up very well in both photos.

If you've started to make your Christmas cards and need some inspiration why not pop over to the Craft-Room challenge to see the fabulous samples that the rest of the DT have made.
