Vintage style Christmas mini card and box set ........



There's a new challenge over at Papertake Weekly - Last Christmas (card of the year)  - and  this is my take on it - a mini card and box set - this is especially for my sister who dislikes flowers on cards so this one has a couple of green leaves and some stamens coloured red with a Copics pen!  I used some 32mm cream vintage style very fine cluny lace, black stripe twill, 7mm red satin, part of a Zva clear crystal swirl and some cream mini pom pom trim, all from Ribbon Girl.  It's amazing how much stuff I can cram on to one of these little 4 inch cards!  All the edges were distresed with Tea Dye distress ink.


The lid was enhanced with more black twill and cream lace plus Venetian Red Vintage Style Seam Binding and small silver jingle bells


I made the tags with a Papertrey die and rubber stamp and as usual the box is made to measure.  All the background papers (Authentique) are machine stitched onto kraft card and the 2 and 5 are tucked behind the ribbon.

Please pop over to Papertake Weekly and take a look at the fabulous projects by the Design Team - I bet you've got time to get one more card made before Christmas for this challenge and there's a great prize as usual!
See you soon, Mary G x
