Vintage Christmas

Posted by Lena Nunn at 9:10 AM
Happy Halloween friends! I know this post does not look very halloween-ish but thats because Im in full Christmas card mode. I have to make a ton of them for a Christmas Boutique im selling at. I love vintage Christmas cards so I really wanted to make some vintage looking ones. I have a few cards from old family friends that I called Grandpa and grandma that are from the 30's . They Have music notes on them and old vintage santas . So adorable! I made this one using a piece of sheet music that I distressed with my Making Memories Distresser and some brown Close To Cocoa ink. The image of santa was also done the same way. I inked up my Baroque Motifs stamp and stamped it onto the Music also. The wreath has been in my collection for about 4 years. My friend Cassie gave me a bunch of them a long time ago saying " you'll figure out something to do with them". She was right . I love this card. The only thing it doesnt have is the vintage smell and I have no idea how you would acheive that.
I am entering this card into the Simon Says Stamp Challenge of Anything Goes
