Taking Time to Look Back

My first Christmas card-vintage style

Last night I sat down and decided I need to start my Christmas cards.  What to do, what to do, I have some new Santa stamps from Stubby Stampers, and the new stash I bought last year.....hmmmm. Then I remembered some vintage post cards that had been in my Grandmother's album when I was putting her info on the Family Tree.  So I got them out and scanned them into the PC.  This one has always been my favorite.  The original is almost a 5x8, but I printed 3x5 and trimmed the edges.  I mounted it on a darker blue background paper I had made years ago, then onto an embossed snowflake, then a mirrored silver.  The card I stamped a snowflake in a Pearlescent Sky Blue, before putting all the layers onto it.  I added a powder blue ribbon down the side.  Using the same pearlescent ink I stamped the sentiment, trimmed it small enough to add to the corner.  Powder blue pearls accent the middle of the flowers on the card, the center of the grunge flower I made and the flourish. I bought those pearls a year ago thinking baby cards, but they were all born girls....LOL A couple of snow flakes in the upper corner finished it off.

  7. I'm late and have no excuse, except I have been under the weather all day today. In fact, I slept most of the day, very unusual for me.

    I have never seen this post before, so I am VERY glad you shared it with us again, for the first time for me. It's a wonderful card and a real tribute to your Grandmother.

    Thanks for digging up this post for a second look on the 2nd. Your grandmother would be proud!
