Christmas Windows

For me, vintage and Christmas go hand-in-hand, and I couldn't resist making a vintage themed Christmas card this year. In fact, I made two! So without further ado, here are the cards I made for Cardmaking, Stamping & Papercraft's Christmas issue. The centrepiece is the Darkroom Door window frame stamp. It's such a versatile image, I love it! The rest is all window dressing (pun intended!) - layers of pretty vintage papers, ribbon, sequins and washi tape. The vintage look is really quite easy to achieve, and so much fun :-)

MERRY CHRISTMAS!

Yuletide

It's that time of year again! Christmas is fast approaching and there are so many cards to be made. Here's an idea for a simple and advanced version of the same card - as seen in the November issue of Cardmaking, Stamping & Papercraft. The simple version is exactly that - super simple to make in bulk. The advanced version is a bit more labour intensive but ideal for special friends and family. Enjoy!

Paper - Doodlebug Design
Card - Bazzill
Embellishments - Darkroom Door yuletide photochips, Darkroom Door yuletide montage, Darkroom Door green alphastrips, Kaisercraft rhinestones, Typo washi tape, ribbon, sequins
Other - Paper Shapers tree punch
