Holiday Card 27 - V for Vintage

Hi, everybody!  Today I'm sharing another holiday card! I'm getting a lot of them made this month with inspiration from the alphabet prompts over at Beccy's Place - she is having her sixth annual Month of Holiday Cards Challenge.  Beccy is on the letter "S" but I've already shared my "S," "T," and "U" cards, so I'm skipping ahead to "V" for Vintage.

I enjoy layering vintage elements together and seeing them all come together on a card - it's a lot of fun!  I used a number of images from Gecko Galz: snow couple from Gecko Galz Christmas Whimsies Collage Sheet; postage stamp from Gecko Galz Altered Christmas; and 4 calling birds ephemera from Gecko Galz 12 Days of Christmas. I used patterned paper, die-cut doily, snowflake sequins, and other vintage ephemera from my stash.

I would also like to support the following challenges: Ally's Angels Winter 1/3; Crafty Hazelnut's Patterned Paper November UE; Crafty Hazelnut's Christmas AG Optional Beginning with "H" (hat, hi) UE; Creatalicious AG Optional Layer it Up UE; Cute Card Thursday Festive Colours UE; DL.ART November Linky AG UE 1/d; Gecko Galz November Challenge Jingle All the Way UE; Joy Clair Inspiration Graphic (see below - I was inspired by the candy canes) UE; Just Keep on Creating November AG UE; Penny's Paper Crafty AG 1/3; Simon Says Stamp Monday Let it Snow 4/5; Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Baby It's Cold Outside 2/5; Word Art Wednesday AG w Uplifting Sentiment 4/5 Wk 1

Straight to the top of the class for you Kitty, already on the letter "V"! Well done! Your vintage-themed Christmas card is adorable, what a cute snowfolk couple. Love the candy cane "HI" they're carrying. I like the addition of the little tickets and tags too, it's a great collage feel.

Wow, such fabulous vintage look!!! And so cute too! Your talent and sweetness always shine, with any style and technique!! There are a lot of details to see and anyone matches perfectly with the others and the gorgeous papers! Love them all and especially the touch of transparent washi behind that amazing turquoise label! The image is just delicious, as well the birdies! Fabulous work, my friend!
