Vintage Snowy Postcard Christmas

Happy Saturday, peeps!  What a lovely day I had yesterday, no humidity, the pool wasn't crowded and the sun was bright!  I came home and made a very quick Christmas card for the Jingle Belles' Blue Christmas challenge as well as the Festive Friday challenge of vintage:

#festivefridaychallenge, #FF0040, Senior Citizen's Day, Retro cards, Vintage cards

This Stampendous image is so large, it really doesn't allow for much embellishment, but that's okay, because it's so pretty!  I stamped it in Lost Lagoon ink (ret) on Very Vanilla cardstock and diecut it with the largest Stitched Rectangle die:

Before adhering it to a Lost Lagoon card base, I sponged the edges with Sahara Sand ink, and then for a little interest, I stamped the two holly images again on some scraps, colored them with Lost Lagoon ink and a Wink of Stella pen, then fussy-cut them and popped them up:

It's a shame you can't see the shimmer, because it's really pretty!  I added some shimmer to the roof of the house and the snowy foreground as well!  I added a simple sentiment on the inside, and it was done!  Another card for my stash!  Thanks for popping by today!  Be sure to come back tomorrow for a new Paper Players challenge!

A few more birthday cards:

An amazing tropical shaker card from Sally, and a beautiful floral creation from Renita:

And a delightful floral in gorgeous Pool Party from Robyn, and a beautiful bluebell from Bonnie:

It's been fun to revisit these pretty cards!  Thanks, ladies!  Enjoy your day and be blessed!
