Tic Tac Toe Challenge #60 Vintage Christmas

Hey everyone, it's time for another fun Tic Tac Toe challenge, with the amazing Shannon from Team X as our hostess!  Here's the grid she chose for us this week:

No photo description available.

I went with the middle row across:  Stitched, Tag, and Vintage (of course), but I also managed to get in Tilted and Enamel Dot from the top row too!  So here we go with my uber-big card:

My friend Teri gave me a slew of amazing Christmas papers, and this pattern was one of them!  I didn't want to cover up the whole background with my tag, so I chose to make my card larger than a standard-sized A4; this is about 5" x 7".  I created a tag with the Bonanza Dies from some coordinating striped paper, then mounted it on a piece of Call Me Clover and trimmed around.  I diecut a Santa with a Stitched Circle die and adhered to the top, then accented it with some dark green glimmer paper greenery, enamel "holly" dots and a red ribbon accent:

I used a little Santa Claus sentiment, which was stamped on the same striped paper and diecut to place at the bottom of the tag:

And to follow with the vintage theme, I used this vintage-style Tim Holtz sentiment on the inside:


My card base was some Kraft cardstock, but it was a little thin, so I added a Very Vanilla panel on the inside to give it a little more structure!  I just love vintage stuff, so thanks, Shannon, for the great inspiration!  I hope you'll play along with our Tic Tac Toe board this week too!  Share it with us over at the blog....see you there!  And if you'd like to see my other post for today, Inspired By, you can see it here!

For someone so young, you sure do Vintage beautifully, my friend! Love that Santa, and this fun paper - so smart to enlarge the size of your card to save every inch of it!
