Merry Monday Christmas Card Challenge #217

Good morning and Merry Monday, we have a new challenge for you this morning. Lori's challenge this week is the Create a Christmas card with a vintage/retro theme.

I found this wonderful paper on my travels last week with my sister. I love how this card turned out. I used stitched die cuts to precision cut this section from a 12 x 12 page, I then created a larger panel from the opposite side of the paper. I added a vintage style sentiment and finished with some moonshine sequins.

I am not sure if this is a little elf or little girl, but with the lantern I love this vintage scene. I popped the layers with foam tape to add some dimension.

Supplies: White cardstock, Designer Paper - Pion, Cornish Heritage Farms - Vintage Christmas, sequins,

Be sure to stop my the Merry Monday blog to see what the design team had created.



  1. Gorgeous card from that vintage paper, Nina - love this!!

  2. You find the best papers, Nina! This is perfect! Love how you've used both sides of the paper! Hope you have a great week!

  3. What a lovely vintage snow scene. That paper is so pretty. Have a great week.

  4. I love Pion's papers...I wish I could find them here in the US! This is adorable!

  5. Nina, this is vintage extraordinaire! Love this wintery scene!

  6. This is exactly the type of card I remember from growing up (I know, I'm dating myself!!)! Fabulous paper and I can see why you were so taken with it...it made a FABULOUS card! Hope you're having a great week Nina! :0)

  7. I love all the grays and red combination on this pretty paper!

  8. Hey Sis

    I could not believe how you pulled just this magic little scene out of the 12 x 12. By the time your card was done it made a story all of its own. It was wonderful poking around in the shops with you.
