Merry Monday #218 - Vintage/Retro Theme

Hello friends.  This week's challenge at Merry Monday is being hosted by Lori and she would like you to use a Vintage/Retro theme on your Christmas cards.


When I think of Vintage/Retro, I think of the cards that were popular when I was growing up, and my favorite ones were always packed with LOTS of glitter and lovely Winter scenes.  Here's what I came up with:



A lot more die cutting than stamping, but I like how this came out!  I blended my background first with Tumbled Glass distress ink, and then built my scene with TH Woodlands tree dies in Old Olive and white glitter cardstocks, and the church from PTI's Tiny Town: Church die.  My sentiment is from PTI's Christmas Blessings set.  I stamped a little on the garlands over the windows using PTI's Bird's & Blooms set.

Excited to see what you all come up with for this week's Vintage/Retro theme!  If you need more inspiration, check out all the fabulous cards from my team mates, and then play along with us and get those Christmas cards done BEFORE Christmas!  You can find all the info you need to play along right HERE.

Thanks so much for stopping by today...I love it when you do!
