Hi there! With Christmas right around the corner, I've been on a Christmas card / tag making roll. Today I have a collection of Christmas cards and tags to share featuring a combination of pretty papers from the Pion Design My Beloved Son and Siri's Kitchen collections along with sweet images from Grandma's Attic. Although all four cards and two tags are similar, no two are the same.
I layered each darling image on an ornate die cut piece that was cut using various Spellbinders dies:
I stamped various PTI sentiments:



I completed three of the four with a bow, glitter kissed rose and a set of jingle bells:

Next up, are a few tags that were made using a combination of all that was used for making the cards:
I'm entering these tags in the Scrap Africa challenge where the challenge is to create at least two tags:


For card sketch inspiration, I joined along with Freshly Made Sketches:
For color inspiration, I joined along with the card Concept challenge rolling with a Shabby Chic theme:
I'm also entering the cards in the Merry Monday challenge where the them is to create a card featuring Christmas Bells:

Such wonderful vintage creations Mona.. each and every one is fabulous! I have lots of Ephemera CD's - I used to use them a lot.... and always would end up wondering what had happened to the people photographed..... what did their lives become?
