Christmas All Year - A Vintage Challenge

Well, I thought I'd done with all the Christmas cards but this little challenge caught my eye! It's been on my challenges list for a while but I've never managed to get myself organised enough to enter. But this one was right up my street! I'd bought quite a few of the fantastic chipboard embellishments from Pound World (11 packs to be precise!) and this is just perfect for this challenge from Christmas Cards All Year 'Round!

"I'd like to see cards with a 'Vintage' type image. That's it, pretty simple...."

The papers are from the Vintage Christmas download from Mad About Cards which I have cornered the edges and layered. Red grosgrain ribbon from my stash. I think I'm going to have to visit Pound World again in Preston after Christmas to see if they still have some of these left - even better if they are in the sale!

  1. Haha!! I bought some of those too, brilliant aren't they!! I love poundland for crafty things!

    Did you hear they were not passing on the VAT cut to their customers? They refused to be known as the
    98p shop!!


  2. what a lovely card, I really like that vintage paper.
