Hello! How are you? Did you have a nice weekend? I had lots of fun. I did some Christmas shopping yeasterday and then went out for lunch with my sweetie. It was so much fun! :D I've already bought most of the Christmas presents, just need to buy 2 or 3 more. Have you done any Christmas shopping yet? Today I did some work stuff in the morning and then in the afternoon I had some friends over. It was lovely.
The card I am about to show you today is a little bit different - at least for me. Usually I make cute cards with a sweet stamped image, but I do like vintage and shabby chic style a lot too, so I thought I'd make a vintage card without a stamped image for a change. Yup, you heard that right. I haven't done any stamping on this card. I know, I know, I must have lost my mind. lol
The inspiration from this card came from my sweet friend Pamellia (most of the inspiration came from this gorgeous card she made). I absolutely love her shabby chic/vintage creations (trust me, she rocks them!). Her card is for breast cancer awareness so it's all pink (so beautiful!), but I decided to make a Christmas card. I took my My Mind's eye Christmas paper pad, chose some papers and went to work. And here's what I came up with ...
See, I told you there was no stamping. ;) Not even a sentiment. Sentiment is actually a rub-on "sticker" from Stampin' up! Season of cheer set that I've had in my stash for ages (literally).
I used some lace, a doily, some pins and some sequins on which I added a perl to decorate my card. I distressed the edges with scissors and inked them up with distress ink. Flower is made with LLLC poinsettia die.
I hope you like my today's card and I hope you got motivated to step out of your comfort zone every now and then too. ;)
Have a wonderful day! xx
