A Vintage Christmas

It's a glorious sunny day today, summer's well and truly on the way - and so, naturally, I'm bringing you my second Christmas card of the day!

The bauble - a very old unmounted stamp I got in a grab bag many years ago - is heat embossed in gold on green card. The label is die cut with one of the original Spellbinders label sets and then, with the die still in place, stamped with some random text and inked around the edges.

On the inside I've added a doyley, layered onto plaid paper that coordinates with the holly paper, and on both the front flap and inside, I've added a strip of ribbon-wrapped card.  The other inside panel, facing away from the camera, is left blank for the sender to write their greeting on.

I'm sharing this with

A beautiful card and stamp Jane. I was making Christmas cards yesterday in the glorious sunshine that we're getting at the moment.
