Vintage Christmas at Sugar Creek Hollow
Welcome to another Sensational Saturday at Sugar Creek Hollow. We know it is August and it has been so hot in so many areas but it is time to cool things down and think Christmas. This week our challenge to you is to make a VINTAGE CHRISTMAS CARD.
We want you to put away your cute images and find a vintage Christmas image in your craft room or online. For this challenge you also need to get out your most vintage papers and embellishments. There are lots of freebies available online so use your favorite search engine and you will find lots of options. If you are in the need of some retail therapy, there are also a number of wonderful vintage products in the craft stores now.
Vintage doesn't necessarily mean overly embellished especially since you want to be able to afford the postage to mail your creation but you do want to make it look old so this is the time to think inks, distressing, lace, antique buttons, etc. - oh my what endless possibilities.
We will be choosing a random winner and that person will receive a winner's badge to display on her blog and a digi of our choice. In addition, the Design Team will choose one project as Card of the Week and the creator will receive a badge to display and will be in the running for a Guest Designer spot.
Our designers pulled out all the stops to create vintage Christmas cards for your inspiration. For details on each card just click on the designer's name and you will be taken to their blog.
I am going to enter this card in the following challenges:
AI Factory - Anything Goes
Aud Sentiments - Merry Christmas on front
Craft Us Crazy - Anything Goes
Fab 'n' Funky - Christmas
