Happy Monday, peeps! Phew, I'm beat. It was a crazy hectic day yesterday between church and our covered dish supper, then Christmas Carol hymn sing....but it really put me in the Christmas spirit! Today is grocery shopping and laundry....so this will be quick! The challenge from In(k)spire Me is Retro Christmas, and Inspire.Create also wants Christmas this week! I have had this wood mounted stamp from Inkadinkado for a long time and have never inked it up! I actually took it off the wood block so I could use it in my Stamparatus and while I was at it, I made three!

Three Vintage Christmas Cards
So here we go:
I am not quite sure why the colors in my photo are really off; my images are stamped on Crumb Cake and the card bases are Cherry Cobbler, Misty Moonlight and Shaded Spruce, but it certainly doesn't look like those colors in real life, LOL! Anyway, you get the gist. I began by stamping them all in my Stamparatus:
Then I diecut them with a Deckled Edge Rectangle die and used a Blending Brush and Crumb Cake ink to give them a vintage look. On the corners of each card, I stamped a holly image from the retired Bells & Boughs set, then mounted the image on top:
A vintage sentiment from Crafty Secrets was stamped and diecut, then added to the inside. Simple & easy!
Thanks for popping in today..if you need any info on any of the products used, just shoot me an email!
Enjoy your day and be blessed!
