Vintage Christmas Card and YouTube tutorial

Standard

Hello blog family.  I know I’m getting fewer and father between on my posts, and one day I just may be able to get myself organized enough to be more regular…..maybe……one day. 😉  So, I’m part of a Facebook group called Mixed Media Mondays that a woman by the name of Tracy Weinzapfel runs and she organized a Christmas Card swap a while back.  Now, it’s been a long time since I’ve been in a swap and after I was done making 12 cards I remembered why…..I have a real hard time making the same card twice…..let alone 12 times!!!  And the only reason I did make the same card 12 times is cause I knew I wouldn’t have enough time to come up with 12 different designs before I had to mail them off…..lol.  I did however, love how they turned out and once I had my little assembly line set up I was hopping and on my way.  It didn’t really take as long as I’d originally thought it would, so that was a plus!!  🙂  So, enough rambling and here’s the card I made.

I love the crackle on this card and all the lace trim to make the tree.  Our local Dollar Store usually has a pretty nice selection of lace on hand…..not much on each roll……but a fairly nice selection none the less.   The lace for the border of the card came from our local Thrift Store and I always hit the mother-load when I go there.  I recently did a YouTube video to show what I purchased on my last trip to the Thrift Store and holy cow, I really lucked out with some awesome Mixed Media goodies and a ton of lace. 

If you’d like to know how I put this card together, go on over to my YouTube where I did a step by step tutorial on the process.  Here’s a link to get you there:
