Vintage Christmas

Cindy is the host for this week's Winter Wonderland challenge and she has chosen 'Lots of Layers' or 'Wish upon a Star' as the themes.

This week we are sponsored by MR Designs who are offering a 10.00 euro gift voucher and Live and Love Crafts who are offering a £10.00 gift voucher.

For my card I have used Crafter's Companion 'Vintage' papers to create my 'Lots of Layers' card.  I am entering Sparkles Monthly Challenge 'Lots of Layers', Penny's Paper-Crafty Challenge 'Anything Goes',  Crafty Hazelnut's Christmas Challenge 'Vintage' and Crafty Hazelnut's Christmas Challenge Extra where 'Anything Goes as long as it's Christmas'.


Card blank: 7" x 5" kraft
Image: Crafter's Companion 'Vintage' (magazine freebie)
Die: Memory Box 'Ringed Buckle'
Card: Red matt, kraft
Paper: Crafter's Companion 'Vintage' (magazine freebie)
Other: Cream Ribbon

I layered green paper onto red card and attached a strip of holly paper to the left side.  I die-cut two Ringed Buckles and layered them to give more dimension.  I threaded the cream ribbon through the buckle and attached it around the join in the papers.  This panel was then attached to the card front.  I layered the Santa topper onto red and kraft card and made another panel of the same size using pink snowflake paper. These were then attached to the card front.
