Non-Traditional Christmas Colours - Vintage Style

It is time for the new challenge at Sugar Creek Hollow and this time we are calling it VINTAGE CHRISTMAS CARDS with a twist - NON-TRADITIONAL COLOURS.

This card was super simple to make and I think it is flat enough that it won't require extra postage.  I started my card with some kraft card stock from Recollections and then added some patterned paper from Farm House Paper Company.  I distressed the background (and everything else) with my scissors and inked the edges with some Vintage Photo Distress Ink from Ranger

I added a panel of white corrugated cardboard from The Funkie Junkie Boutique and another panel made from Tim Holtz Color Core card stock that I embossed with an embossing folder called Budding Vine from Craft Concepts.

Next came some crochet lace from my sewing stash, a vintage image that was a freebie from Linda, The Funkie Junkie and a ticket from The Beary Scrap.  I made a loopy bow from twine and topped it with another loopy bow made from seam binding dyed with Forest Moss Distress Ink.  Finally I added some buttons from my stash.


  1. Lovely card, nice papers and I love the fantastic bow....

  2. Wow Cec, this is just gorgeous! I love the vintage greens and all the distressing! Your double layered bow is just perfect and the panel with the embossing is fabulous, great texture! Such a great mix of vintage and shabby, just love it! big hugs my friend, see you next week! :)


I love to hear what you think about my work, so please leave me a comment.
