Sensational Saturday at Sugar Creek Hollow

Welcome to another Sensational Saturday at Sugar Creek Hollow! I know it's August and has been so hot in so many areas but now it's time to cool things down and think Christmas this week. 

Our challenge is to create a Vintage Christmas card. We want you to put away your cute images and find a vintage Christmas image in your craft room or online. For this challenge you also need to get out your most vintage papers and embellishments and have fun distressing - just generally making your card look old and vintage!

You can see on my vintage Christmas card I did a lot of distressing with inks and by scruffing up the edges of my card stock.  I used a really old Christmas stamp from Stampin Up! (Old Fashioned Christmas) and added a touch of color with Prismacolor pencils - just enough color to make it look faded from age. The doily die cut is Spellbinders Parisian Motifs - I love this die.  A little vintage lace and the card is complete.

Now take a look at the Sugar Creek Hollow design team vintage creations - you'll be inspired.

Thanks for stopping by!
