It is hard to believe that whilst I am writing this post on Friday evening, it is snowing and the garden is beginning to look like a winter wonderland.
So I am thinking that a Christmas project for my D.T. piece over at
Sugar Creek Hollow this week was a good choice.
Our theme this time is ' Vintage Texting' and we ask that you show us a sentiment and/or other text. Remember that we like to see a Vintage /Shabby Chic style.
Please pop over for all the details and see what we have all been making.
This is a box card that I had fun making recently when I spent a weekend with a fantastic group of Craft Friends. It was wonderful sharing ideas, stamps, learning new techniques and generally having a marvellous time. I have Liz to thank for showing me how to make this shape card.
There is a variety of time stamps round all the edges. The shading is all Vintage Photo and Tea Dye distress inks.
I used Graphics 45 papers for the base layer, adding a fussy cut pieces from another sheet for the next layer.
I loved the sentiment of 'Christmas joy is in my heart', so this was added with the trimmings of lace, pearls and die cut snowflake swirls.
I will also be entering the challenge at-
