AHSC501 Retro Christmas

Happy Tuesday, peeps, hope you're all doing well!  I haven't made a retro Christmas card for a while, and I got some cute papers from Prima recently that worked well with the Atlantic Hearts Sketch; here's the sketch:

and here we go:

I let the paper do most of the work!  

I cut out a big scalloped circle and adhered it to a striped piece, then ran some machine-stitching around the outer edges.  I stamped a sentiment from an old Cornish Heritage Farms vintage Christmas set in Soft Succulent, then diecut it with the Stylish Shapes dies:

I did lots of fussy-cutting, snipping out this little cutie along with the poinsettia behind her and the bow on the sentiment:

I added a few colored pearls before I mounted everything on a Pink Pirouette card base and stamped another CHF stamp on the inside in Poppy Parade:

These images are the ones I remember from my early childhood and they always make me happy!  

Here's a sweet treat Cassidy found....probably at Walmart!  That's a lot of candy! THREE pounds!  My teeth hurt just looking at it!

Thanks for visiting today--enjoy it and be blessed!

Wonderful fussy cutting on the sweet little girl. Then there's the 3 lb. of sweet the likes of which I have never seen!

Oh, LeAnne! It's adorable right down to the last stitch! Those papers were intended for you, my friend!
Our son in law got one of those giant Hershey's bars for Tom - you wouldn't believe how quickly he ate it! lol

I love when folks do retro because I'm not very good with creating it myself, but I do love those whimsical and fun images! That candy bar makes my teeth hurt too!
