A Vintage Christmas

Hi everyone! 
Today, I'm lucky to have one more day off and what better to do early in the morning... but get this week's sketch from Mojo Monday #415. I have been trying to get some Christmas cards done so that I'm not so far behind when the holiday comes around. Today's sketch came super easy for me and here is my ending card in less than 30 minutes.


I distressed the edges and used an old paper pack called "Noel" from American Crafts. I found it last year during the holidays at Marshall's for $2.99. The paper pack is vintage looking and that was one of the reasons I had to have it. There are also several pre printed tags inside which made this card quick. 


I know the sketch has only one tag but I thought why not make it two! I added cream cardstock around the edges just to give it more layers.  The lace ribbon was the ending piece of my roll and the flowers were part of the huge flower bag that I bought last year at the local scrapbooking yard sale. 


Here you can see the two tags come out if you want to use them for regular gift tags or journal something from Santa on the back. :) The Merry Christmas tag I placed tiny pop dots behind it so the tags slide easily in and out. 


Here is the great sketch! Thanks! 


Have a great day! 
Lots of cards scheduled this week, so be sure to stop by soon!
Hugs, Lisa
