Crafty Secrets Christmas Cards


Good morning, all! Hope you had a warm, cozy holiday weekend! It snowed in Minnesota, so it's looking like it will be a white Christmas for us! I sat down last week and finally got to play with my Crafty Secrets "Christmas Joy" ornament set! I've had it sitting on my desk for ages but finally sat down and USED it! Coincidentally, our fearless design team leader, Vicki Chrisman, issued a challenge for us to post Christmas cards this week! So I was ready to go on this one! I'm going to post vintage Christmas cards all this week, so stay tuned for more ways to use this cool ornament set. I have a bingo card to post, too!



I used papers from Crafty's Radiant paper pad; it comes with sheet music in the back of the pad, so I layered the sheet music underneath the cute little birdies. I love this cool sentiment that comes with the set. And of course, I HAD to put Vintage Christmas Flowersoft around my image! I know, that's really odd, me using that stuff, right?

The Crafty girls are all busy making vintage Christmas cards, for the challenge, so make sure to check out their blogs today if you're into vintage!

Lisa, your card is absolutely BEAUTIFUL!! I love the traditional Christmas colors and the little birdies are so cute! The vintage Christmas flower soft looks amazing! I might have to get some of that stuff. Just wondering, is it easy to work with? It looks like a lot of fun! Happy Holidays!!

I just love the way you used the stamps on this set. Everything looks so great together. Great job with the coloring. After all the projects that you have done using the flower soft, I must check it out. Thanks for all the inspiration you give.
