Vintage Blue Christmas

Christmas is approaching, and there can never be enough Christmas cards, right? Today’s card is unusual for me, since it’s blue! It sure is suitable for any recipient, because of it’s classic design.

Supplies
A2 Matting Basics A 
Vintage Flourish Pattern
Fancy Label Tags One 
Fancy Label Tags Two
White Pearl Linen 
Baby Rhinestones – Silver
1/2″ Scor-Tape

I used beige and blue metallic cardstocks together with blue patterned paper. I printed a Christmas tag on linen. Then I mounted the image on various labels, but they are actually altered. The image is directly adhered to a combination of two blue Spellbinders Fancy Label Tags One, which were glued one on top of the other and that ended up looking like and oval. Then I die cut a label from Spellbinders A2 Valiant Honor, to which I cut the sides, making it narrower. Finally I combined two Spellbinders Fancy Label Tags Two, to create a long rectangle.

I made the card base using Spellbinders A2 Matting Basics A. To add interest to the card base I die cut a beautiful blue frame (one of my favorites) with Our Daily Bread Designs’ Vintage Flourish Pattern. Finally I decorated the image with a few Baby Rhinestones – Silver.

I love how these die cuts look together. The card ended up looking very elegant. I invite you to check out the supplies used from Classy Cards ‘n Such store. Remember to use my code Gracie-10 to get 10% off your entire order (clearance products included)!
