Crafty Secrets Christmas Creations

Hello my friends and thank you so much for stopping by my blog today!

I've had these two Christmas cards sitting on my table and had forgotten to share them with you.  They are both made using Crafty Secrets images/papers.  Please be sure to pop over to Crafty Secrets to see all of the AMAZING products.  If you are a vintage lover like myself, THIS is the place to be!

Here I have not only created a multi layered card using both parts of the image & journalling note from the Christmas Booklet but have also used the same Crafty Secrets Vintage Christmas collage paper that I used for the background on my card and printed it onto regular printer paper to use as wrapping paper for my package.

This vintage Santa image is one of my all time favorites among all the fabulous Crafty Secrets Vintage Christmas images.  Here I have simply printed a sheet of their Christmas plaid paper for the backing which was edged with a gold Pilot Marker.  A gold Wilton doily was also used to showcase this beautiful image.  A touch of ribbon and a cute little snowman charm and this card is ready for any lady or gentleman!

I've been having SO MUCH FUN creating with these amazing digital images and papers!  Please come check out all the fun & products Crafty Secrets/Heartwarming Vintage has to offer ... here are the links:
