About the Artist

I just love crafting, the messier the better. Have been crafting all my days but in the last 16 years have been doing more and more. My obsession began with making cards and from there I have tried many different forms of crafting. Great fan of Tim_Holtz love all his products would love to own them all one day. Graphic 45 is another must have for me and again would love to have it all. And then there is Prima well what can a girl say, just simply stunningly beautiful. Really enjoying the vintage, shabby chic and steampunk styles which are very much in vogue at the minute. Love Lace and Pearl trim, you might be seeing a fair bit of it all on here. xx Please keep calling past and enjoy my crafting journey with me. Great Big Huge Hugs Becca xxx

Craftymess Challenge Blog 23rd Challenge - Vintage Christmas

Hi everyone, I have been very busy and over at Craftymess Challenge Blog the theme for our latest challenge has been chosen by yours truly and I opted for 'Vintage Christmas' which I thought would be very appropriate for the time of year, really trying to get me in the Christmas mood.

Here is my DT Vintage Christmas card that I created

For this card I decided to break open my Graphic 45 Christmas Emporium paper, oh my word Graphic 45 what words can I use they are absolutely fantastic, great quality, stunning to work with oh and wonderful to sniff and stroke.  But I gave in and they are no longer hoarded, I have used them now :-)

For this card I used a 5x5 Papermainia Kraft Card, backing paper is a sheet of Vintage Christmas from my stash.  I matted and layered 2 sheets of G45 Christmas Emporium paper.  The Vintage image of the Mother and Children I stickled to make it pop out.  I used some cream lace and trim running down the side, topped with a cream and pearl centered satin flower and finished off with some pop dotted Vintage Christmas embellishments from Lidl.

I hope you like the finished card, I think I managed to capture the 'Vintage Christmas' Theme and I am quite happy with the finished card.
