A Very Merry Vintage Christmas!

Hello friends!  I hope you are all doing well! 

Today I'm sharing a Christmas card made on the vintage side! :)  I think these papers and colors give it a  vintage feel.

I used a sentiment from the Jingle Bells set, and paired that with two of these GORGEOUS ODBD Custom Fancy Ornament Dies!  I used designer paper from My Mind's Eye Lost & Found Christmas pack, some brushed gold and True Thyme card stock for my papers.  I also used a Spellbinders A2 Scalloped Border and Fancy Framed Tags 2.  The embossing on the gold layer is done with a Craftwell Regency A4  embossing folder.  I embellished with a sheer burgandy ribbon and some gold cording for hanging my ornaments.

To show another take on the same ornaments and stamp set.... here is another sample...

For this one, I used Blue Bayou for a base and layered on designer paper from BasicGrey called North Country.  I used silver glitter paper to cut my ornaments, embossed my sentiment with glittery silver embossing powder, and cut with a Spellbinders Fancy Framed Tag.  I cut my ornament hangers from silver mirrored paper, and added silver cord to hang the ornaments with.  I punched the top panel with a Martha Stewart punch and added a little silver ribbon at the bottom.  Same elements... different look. I don't know if this card looks vintage in the photo, but in real life, it kind of does!  I LOVE these ornaments and I think many of my Christmas cards this year will be made with them! 

Here are the ODBD products I used:
