Perfect Senitments: "Vintage Christmas"

It is time for another challenge at The Perfect Sentiment!
The challenge: create a card with a Christmas sentiment
The twist: use something vintange on your card
Now, bear with me as my style is clearly not vintage.  In face, I think this card may actually be the first time I have ever made a vintage project. 
The card is 4 1/2"x6 1/4."  I used white cardstock for the card base.  I then cut some polka dotted cardstock at 4 1/4"x6."  The dark red layer is 3 3/4"x5 1/8."  The notebook cardstock is 3 5/8"x5."  The dark red banner is 1 5/8"x3 3/8."  The patterned banner is 1 1/2"x3 1/4."  All the patterned cardstock is from the All is Bright stack by My Mind's Eye.  I put a white pearl brad through the top of the banner.  I used a stamp from my stash for the sentiment.  It is stamped in rhubarb stalk ink by Tsukineko.  It is pretty simple, but I think it works. 
Now, come on over to The Perfect Sentiment and join us in our "Vintage Christmas" challenge.  I can't wait to see what you create!


  1. Like the Vintage Christmas card. Especially like the dark red layering, banner & the pearl. The color of the ink goes well with the dark red layering. Enjoyed my time as Sept Guest Designer for Perfect Sentiments.
