A Season’s Greetings

Happy Wednesday, Friends!

When I was off on my scrapbooking beach retreat a couple of weeks ago, I started working on my Christmas cards for the year. I finished 16 cards at the retreat, all made with a favorite old holiday collection, BasicGrey’s 25th & Pine. Today I have one of those cards to share with you.

I am a sucker for vintage glass ornaments, so this sweet paper version is one of my favorite pieces from the collection. I added the ornament to a large chipboard oval, and dressed it up with sequins, twine, and tag.

The card base is a simple pieced background, with papers cut on a diagonal. It’s a mix of 6×6 and 12×12 prints for a bit of interest. And I used some tiny scraps for border and flags.

Thanks so much for stopping by! Hope you all have a super wonderful day!

  3. I love that cool ornament too. It was always a thrill at Christmas to go through my grandmas ornament box with all the old bubble lights and other treasures from days gone by. Lovely card. Hugs!
