Crimbo Crackers Challenge 24 - Vintage

Time for another Crimbo Crackers challenge and this fortnight the theme is:


I have a fab new sponsor - Cardmaker's Delights and Tracey the owner and creator of the fab toppers sent me a rather generous selection so I could make a sample!  There are 5 sets of the winners choice to be won and to have a look at what Tracey offers, just click on the banner below:

I've used various toppers a number of times over the past months and I can honestly say that they are wonderful quality - thick card and amazing colour.  They are the size of the old cigarette cards and can be layered and matted to co-ordinate with other images and papers.  Great to use when you don't have time (or can't be bothered!) to colour an image!  And they don't take up a lot of storage either - the only downside is trying to decide which collections to buy as there are lots of choice!

I've used Prima 6x6 papers - North Country Collection both for the card base and layering plus some thin organza chocolate brown ribbon and some jet black half pearls.  I've had the papers around 6 months and this is the first time I've broken into them.  Terrible eh?!  Really quick and simple to make.  And I've also discovered the the top of the garden waste wheelie bin is a good place to take a photo especially when its nice and sunny!  The bin was clean!

Not my typical Christmas card make, but I actually quite like it!

Good luck with the Crimbo Crackers challenge - for more details, pop over to the blog.
