Vintage Christmas

Through one of the other blogs I follow I was introduced to The Paper Players.

This week's challenge was to use something vintage on a card. I don't have a lot to choose from when it comes to Christmas vintage...and I wanted to keep making Christmas cards so my time had purpose! I came across this nutcracker tag punch out from Graphic 45 in my stash.

Nutcrackers are so traditionally Christmas....I added some paper from The Paper Studio Old World Winter stack and this went together so quickly! Keeping with my goal of clean and simple design for Christmas cards, I had three of the images on the sheet so I actually knocked out three cards at that!


  1. Love the nutcracker -- it's very vintage! Thanks for joining us at The Paper Players.

  2. Love your vintage nutcracker, paired perfectly with your patterned papers! The additionl of the blue into your colour scheme is great too - it makes the nutcracker really pop. Thanks for joining us over at The Paper Players this week!

  3. So glad you found our challenge and were able to participate! Love your little nutcracker and that gorgeous paper! Thanks so much for playing with my challenge this week! BTW, you still have word verification turned on, which makes it a bit more challenging to leave comments..if you need to know how to turn it off, let me know!

    1. Whoops! I will look at it tonight. Thought I'd turned it off. Thank you!

  4. Your nutcracker is fabulous and I love him against your vintage backdrop. So glad you joined us at the Paper Players this week
