Any of you who know me ... know that Vintage is my first love and I'm hooked on the vintage images & products by CRAFTY SECRETS.
So, needless to say, when Sandy Redburn (owner of Crafty Secrets) asked me to join the design team in their challenge today as a GUEST, I immediately said YES and I couldn't be more thrilled!!! Thanks so much! PLEASE, be sure to check out all the amazing creations by the Design Team (listed at the end of my post) ... you won't be disappointed ... these ladies are amazingly talented!!! Today's challenge is of a CHRISTMAS THEME and I've decided to make a set of 6 cards with matching tin for my daughter.
I've had several tins I purchased at Michaels last year and have never done anything with them until today that is!! The card base is White 80# paper from Hollo's and the designer paper is from the Crafty Secrets RADIANT pack. My main panel dp is gold but I have sponged around the edges with Ruby Red ink and used the Martha Stewart Loop punches for a little added interest. The two Crafty Secrets Christmas sets I have used today are Vintage Christmas and Christmas Joy. I've used chalks and makeup applicators to color in my santa image. Nesabilities were used to diecut my circle/scallop circle matt and the holiday ribbon came from JoAnn's.
I enjoyed making this set and hopefully will find time to make a few more. Enjoy your day and be sure to hop on over to the DT blogs as well as the Crafty Secrets Website. All link are listed below:
