Vintage Postcard Christmas

This stamp has been in my collection forever, and yet I have never used it on a Christmas card. I turned to Pinterest for inspiration and found some great examples of Christmas Cards that used this design - so in essence I could probably say that inspiration for this card came from a number of sources. For anyone who has a stamp they haven't used in a while and needs ideas, just put your stamp name and company in the search box on Pinterest and hopefully it will give you a reason to visit some old favorites like I did!

Okay this stamp has been in my craft room forever, and this year I decided to put it to some use. I feel like I did some really classic Victorian style Christmas cards this year, and this is one of them.

Beautiful Blue Christmas

I went a little retro this Christmas, not necessarily in the designs, but in the supplies. I dug out a lot of stamps and papers I have had for ages, including the gorgeous background paper you see on this card. It's from SandyLion, which should tell you how old it is, since I don't even know if that company is still operating.

I took inspiration for this card from a card done by Hania (http://hania739.blogspot.ca/). She has some beautiful work if you would like to check out her site.

This was such a simple card to make, but it's really pretty. And for anyone who knows me and thinks I might have lost my mind - no that isn't sewing on the edges, that's the Bo Bunny Stitches stamp!!!
