Snowy Christmas Blessings

Sweet blessings blog friends!!!  I hope you don’t mind another Christmas card!  
Daughter is home and I put this together while we sat at the table to do some catch up.  To me it’s amazing to look back over the years and realize that just as people say, they grow up in the blink of an eye.  I knew it would be this way, but there’s no way to slow it down.  I love it that the holidays bring everyone home — what a comfort!  I hope you are in the midst of your own comfort today.   For my card today I’ve used coppers and mauve and non-traditional colors along with some vintage papers (musical notes and snowy angel) from Crafty Secrets – Creating with Vintage Christmas CD.

I started out with my card base then a panel using the musical notes.  On top of that I layered Spellbinders™ A2 Fancy Ribbon Threader (turned upside down).  On the next layer I included Spellbinders™ Vintage Lace Accents and my snow angel panel topped off by Spellbinders™ Twisted Metal Accents.   Lastly Snowflake Sentiments is cut from Spellbinders™ Back to Basics Tags.  Although it won’t get mailed this year – there’s always room in the stash for another one!!

    This is so beautiful, Becca. I love the way you framed the image with that lovely copper frame. And the bow is stunning with that lovely vintage button. You are so clever with your dies….love that you turned one upside down to make it work. I hope you have a wonderful Christmas with your daughter. Blessings!ReplyCancel

    This is such a lovely vintage card. I am all sold on copperr and love the twisted metal frame. I do have a question; is this copper paper or did you emboss with copper? Doesn’t look embossed though. I just love it! Merry Christmas to you with your lovely family.ReplyCancel

    Hi Becca,

    What a cozy picture that is in my mind – you and your daughter sitting around a table and catching up on all your news while you’re crafting. That’s exactly what Christmas is really all about, isn’t it?
    I love the Victorian, vintage-y (is that a word? lol) look of this card. It’s such a feminine take on a Christmas card. It looks exactly like the ones they always have on show at a historic site in my home city. It’s the house where Canada’s first Prime Minister lived as a boy and every year they decorate it like crazy for Christmas. The house was built and occupied by his family during the Victoria era and Christmas decorations and gifts were so new and fashionable back then. Spruce and pine trees and boughs are placed and hung all throughout the house. Then the staff go crazy decorating everything with cards, cones and garlands in the same style you chose for your card.

    Thanks for a wonderful reminder of my childhood! Merry Christmas and blessings to you and your family.ReplyCancel

    LOVE the twisted metal accents! I think I’d like that die!! Have a great time with your daughter. It won’t be long before my 2 girls will be grown and gone so i am enjoying all the time I can with them before our house turns into a “guy” house with my hubby and 2 boys!

  • LorettaDecember 27, 2012 - 10:08 pm
