Time once again for the girls in
the Christmas Card club to show
It was the turn of Kate to set the theme
and her choice was Christmas Scene.
So off to my box of used Christmas card fronts
I went and turned up
another 2 suitable ones
and as you will know by now I used them both!!
First up the Vintage style.
I liked this card front showing a vintage scene
of days gone by.
Again it didn't need much added to it
just a freshen up.
I used a cream card blank and addhered a smaller sized
piece of pearlescent rolled gold card stock on top.
I trimmed the card down slightly and used my inverted
corner chomper to add a bit of interest to the shape.
There was a tag included in the original picture which
I thought looked a bit bland so I simply made another one up
and popped over the top.
I used a gold foil sticker for the sentiment
with a few matching stars and a snippet of silver gold
thread for the tag pull.
No one will be any the wiser apart from you
but you won't tell will you!!
Pearls for each corner completed the new look.
Second card is a little bit Whimsical.
Original card front was a lot longer but
I had the idea of cutting into 3 unequal panels
and overlaying the centre larger panel over the top
of the smaller side panels thus making a squarer shape.
The scene just lent itself to this idea and it worked perfectly
without loosing continuity of the scene.
I used a white card blank for the base and covered
both the front and inside with red card stock.
I adhered the side panels on first and then the middle panel
on 3d pads over the top. Again not much else needed.
I die cut the corners using Spellbinders
Once glued in place
4 pearls from my stash finished the card.

So once again you choose.
Vintage style or A little bit Whimsical?
