Vintage Collage Recipe Christmas Card Series #4

Fill your Christmas Card Box retro style - Pt 4

This card making series is really helping me have plenty of cards to send out early rather than late and in a rush. Today the focus is on the Tim Holtz ephemera pack and using the photo booth snaps to add an image and although they are not Christmassy pics they seem to fit well with the papers and ephemera pieces.

Mostly Tim Holtz
Merriment paper stash
Festive ephemera pack
Photobooth images of children
Christmastime flash cards
Dies - Holiday Words Script. movers and shapers mini bell
Miscellaneous - American seam binding, gold frame (outside scraps left from the frame cutting for the previous set of cards)

Gather all the elements you want to put together.
  The fork? well I wanted little bows to add to the bells and this was the quickest way to do it using the american seam binding. 

Glitter on the bell gave the whole card some extra dimension and interest.

The gold frames came later when I was putting the cards together, they were left from a previous set of cards I made. Waste not want not eh?

Don't you think these have a retro feel to them?

Thanks for stopping by today. I hope you have your card making well in hand - I also have to buy cards as I seem to send so many out. However this year I am reducing the number and sending ecards  to some friends and contributing some money to charity.

Take care.
