The Cards

Each year, I make a new batch of Christmas cards. They are usually a vintage style and almost always feature an image that evokes memories of Christmases past.

This year, I decided to use up some of the supplies that are hanging around the craft room. I combined the new Prima “Sweet Peppermint” papers with some older Bo Bunny, or whatever I had on hand.

I usually make one style of card and then create a pile that are all identical. This year, I used a similar style on all the cards, but each is different. Let’s take a look at a few of them.

Each card has a vintage book page, various patterned papers, and a beautiful vintage image as the centerpiece. Some of the images are from patterned papers and others are printed from vintage postcards.

Die cut greenery is layered with a shiny die cut “25” (both from Tim Holtz).

Sparkly Stickles and vintage sequins give just the right amount of bling.


I hope your Christmas season is off to a great start!

    These are SO stunning, Erica! You are so smart to come up with one basic design, and replicate it with different papers and images. Such a time saver, and each one truly is unique and individual. And what a gorgeous design, too! Love the book paper and the netting stitched into the background, and love all those sweet vintage images. The sparkly holly, numbers, glitter, and sequins add just that perfect touch of holiday glam, too!
