A Vintage Christmas Card for Papercupcakes latest Challenge!

I am starting to get on a roll with my Christmas Card making this past week, and this weeks Paper Cupcakes Challenge over at There's Magic In the Air has helped.  The challenge for this week, which is my final week as Guest Designer is to create a Shabby Chic or Vintage Christmas Card.  November has just flown by and I want to thank Nina and all the Papercupcakes Design Team for allowing me the opportunity to join them each week throughout November and showcase the many wonderful Paper Cupcake Images.


This delightful christmas decoration image is called Mary and Jesus Bulb and is of course from Paper Cupcakes.  To give my card the vintage look I chose traditional Christmas Colours, I have distressed my background paper using my SU Distressing Tool and Pumice Stone Distress Inks.  I have also included some vintage lace, ruffled ribbon and a hand made flower with button centre.  The patterned paper is one from the Echo Park Merry Christmas Collection, and I have coloured in my Bulb Image with my Tria Markers and a bit of Glitter from my Viva Decor Glitter Liners.  All in all I was happy with the vintage look and how this card turned out.

If you would like to try your hand at a Vintage or Shabby Chic Christmas Card you will find some wonderful inspiration and ideas over at There's Magic In the Air.  I can't wait to see what you create!

Your card is super pretty. I love all the Shabby Chic details and it really showcases your image of the bulb with Mary and Jesus.
