Vintage Christmas

I haven't been doing much in the way of card challenges lately.......been focusing more on jewellery and quick cards for selling at a 2 day festival last weekend.  Now that's over I can get back to my relaxing hobby :)

Here's a simple vintage/traditional Christmas card for Make my Monday.
I really like these papers from a freebie pad that came with a magazine......they have that old muted colour to them that goes well with a vintage-look.
Supplies: green card base, kraft cardstock, parchment paper, Hot Off The Press Forever Christmas Cards paper stack, self adhesive paper lace, EK Success holly sticker, sentiment sticker, foam pads, ds tape.

Tools: Sizzix Big Shot, Spellbinders Nestabilities Labels Four dies, guillotine.
