Vintage Merry Christmas
The eagle eyed amoungst you might recognise this creation from my desk a couple of week's back .. .. I'd almost forgotten about it! It's a pocket card, well not a actually a card in the sense that it opens and stands up but, I might fix it to a tent fold card base and use it for next year - once I get back to my craft stash again that is. After taking off half the front of what was a kraft square card for something else, I was left with a short flap so used a pretty Marianne lace edge die on it and inked the embossed areas with Walnut DI to make them stand out. I took a piece of Marianne paper and cut the scallp to fit under the lace edge then used the plain 'knitted' print on the back flap before sticking the edges down to create the pocket.
The tag is more of the Marianne knitted paper and cut out label from the pack. I stamped the Marianne little border and text with brown Momento then added my diecut embellishments and the pearls to finish things off.
The Marianne dies I used are:
Anja's lace - LR0201
mini poinsettia - LR0142
swirl - LR0116
The Holly Jolly Christmas challenge is for vintage creations and the Fab 'n' Funky challenge is to add a little ribbon or lace - I just have the pretty lace loop on my Christmas tag but hopefully it's enough. The girls over at Fussy and Fancy Friday are looking for tags or banners, so I'll link up with them too.
