Christmas Past


I am loving these wonderful Vintage die cuts (K&Co.) that I purchased recently on a trip to Atlanta. I have been running around in crazy circles so I am very happy to have a product that helps me create quickly.

I only wish that I had time to take photos of everything I was using these nifty little items on: Tags, Recipe Cards, Cards..............

Close up of the seam binding that I died in a cup of tea and a fun little vintage bell
The photo below is an attempt to show how I curved the little girl and the book to give them a more 3 dimensional appearance
NOW if I only had the time to do the million other little things to the cards I have created, I might actually get one or two in the mail before Christmas! You know what I mean, finishing the insides, stamping the backs, writing our names in them, addressing envelopes!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! This one will be going to someone super special since it will surely be difficult to mail and probably cost a fortune (yep gotta love the little bells but are they not PERFECT)

CHALLENGES I USED:
One Crazy Stamper: Christmas or Winter
Totally Gorjuss: For Someone Special
Fresh Brewed: Merry Christmas
Simon Says Stamp & Show: Something from Yesteryear

I love the vintage die cut, haven't seen them in my area. Curving the girl is a great detail. It all comes together very nicely.
