Back in My Day – Vintage Christmas Card

Christmas is such a beautiful season where we make memories with our families and loved ones. The theme for Day 17 of Martin Stone’s #30DayChristmasCardMakingChallenge is Back in My Day. Creating a vintage card was lots of fun. There definitely was no snow ‘back in my day’ when I was growing up in Sri Lanka. I have such wonderful memories of Christmas with my family. I created this snowy card because Christmas makes me think of snow as we used to stories during Christmas or receive beautiful Christmas cards with lovely pictures centred around snow.

The Feels Like Frost Designer Series Paper provided the backdrop for my vintage card. I used the Craft ink pad to go right around the edges of the paper. Then, using a sponge dauber, I added Cinnamon Cider and Early Espresso ink.

This cute cabin from Still Scenes stamp set nestled perfectly against the background. I coloured this in a combination of Stampin’ Blends and die cut it with the coordinating die.

I couldn’t go past the beautiful lace trim for this vintage card. A length of Poppy Parade ribbon was coloured with the Cherry Cobbler Stampin’ Blend to create my coordinating ribbon.

The sentiment from For Unto Us stamp set has also been distressed using Cinnamon Cider ink.
